The post was earlier held by Praveen Dixit, an IPS officer of 1977 batch, who was posted in December last year.
This year in April, Mathur was appointed as the DGP of the Anti-Corruption Bureau.
Mathur, who is a 1981 batch IPS officer, is the senior-most serving DG-rank officer.
Mathur, who served as the Pune Police Commissioner, was last year promoted to the rank of Director General of Police (DGP).
