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.
