Tenure curtailed for Khadi and Village Industries Commission CEO, two other senior officers

THE government has curtailed the tenure of Anshu Sinha, 1999 batch Maharashtra cadre IAS and CEO of Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) barely five months after she was brought into Mumbai to head the Commission. Two other officers whose current tenure is also curtailed are 1988 batch Uttar Pradesh cadre IAS Manoj Kumar Singh and 1996 batch Indian Audit and Account Service officer Shanti Priya Sarela. Ms Sinha took charge of KVIC only on February 1 this year, and her tenure was up to January 29, 2019, according to her appointments order. She took charge just after the KVIC was mired around the controversy of replacing…

Prior to the appointment as KVIC CEO, Anshu Sinha was director and then joint secretary in the union ministry of information and broadcasting for two years. Before that she was with the department of personnel and training (DoPT) for two years (2013-15). She is an M.Sc in botany.
Meanwhile, Manoj Kumar Singh, a 1988 batch Uttar Pradesh cadre IAS and joint secretary in the ministry of environment, forest and climate change, is prematurely repatriated to his parent cadre. Singh, 51, was appointed as joint secretary in 2014 upto October 12, 2019. Earlier, he had served as principal secretary in UP’s rural engineering services department and also as Chief Executive Officer of Greater Noida Authority. Singh did MSc in agriculture before getting into IAS.
Also, the tenure of Shanti Priya Sarela, a 1996 batch Indian Audit and Account Service officer, currently serving as director in the ministry of defence, has been curtailed. Her tenure is, however, curtailed on her selection for the post of director in the national rural roads development agency under the ministry of rural development.
