Sudeep Lakhtakia of Andhra Pradesh cadre, Ram Phal Pawar of West Bengal cadre and SL Thaosen of Madhya Pradesh cadre, who have been with the SPG from the beginning of the UPA-I in 2005, were recently given extension despite the ACC in its order dated August 8, 2011 considered their extension for seven months on the conditions that “no further extension would be considered”.
Whereas Pawar’s extension, according to the new order dated June 19, 2012, is till September 30 this year, Lakhtakia and Thaosen will continue at SPG till December 31, 2012. The August 2011 order said “operational needs and sensitivity of the job” were the reasons for giving them extension up to eight years. The same order further directed the cabinet secretary to take “appropriate steps” to find suitable substitutes.
