Senior IPS officer Krishna Chaudhary on 11 February 2015 took charge as the Director General (DG) of the border guarding force Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP).

He succeeded Subhas Goswami.  He is a 1979-batch Bihar cadre IPS officer.

Earlier, he was serving as the Director General (DG) of the Railway Protection Force under the Union Railway Ministry.

The Appointments Committee of Cabinet (ACC) headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi had issued orders for appointment of the officer in January 2015.

He will retire in June 2017. This is one of the rare occasions in paramilitary forces' history that a DG can be expected to hold the top post for over two years time as usually these posts are held by senior officials for a maximum of about 1.5 years as their superannuation comes by.

The officer is a recipient of service medals given by the President to meritorious and distinguished policemen.
