Babus in Demand: Junior officials wanted for Sonia Gandhi-chaired National Advisory Council (NAC)

AFTER appointing 1974 batch IAS Rita Sharma as secretary to Sonia Gandhi-chaired National Advisory Council (NAC) and Koppula Raju, a 1981 batch AP cadre IAS as joint secretary, the government has now issued a circular to fill up 10 junior level posts on deputation basis.

In an office memorandum, dated June 15, the department of personnel and training (DoPT) asked the CSS and CSSS officials to apply urgently for the posts of desk officers, PS and PAs. The willing officers may also contact CS-I division of DoPT in person, according to the circular.

DoPT again advertises for NHAI chairman’s post
The DoPT has again advertised for the post of chairman of National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) for which a number of secretary or secretary equivalent officers had applied a few months ago. But the selection process got scrapped after it was found that a member of the search committee was himself an applicant. Significantly, both the incumbent NHAI chairman Brijeswar Singh, 1975 batch Tamil Nadu cadre IAS and transport secretary Brahm Dutt, a 1973 batch IAS of Karnataka cadre were contenders for the post when it was advertised a few months ago. Significantly, NHAI’s chairman post is a lucrative one after the Cabinet raised the retirement age from 62 to 65 a few months ago. The deadline for submitting application is as early as June 30.

Secretaries In Action
a) Union home secretary GK Pillai has invited the chief secretaries of Nagaland and Manipur for an emergency meeting in New Delhi on Wednesday to discuss the steps to be taken by the two state governments to keep NH-39 open.
b) DIPP secretary RP Singh, a 1976 batch Andhra Pradesh cadre IAS, is on a week-long tour to China and Japan now, mainly to generate interest among investors about Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) project. He is accompanied by DMIC Development Corporation CEO Amitabh Kant.
