As Indianmandarins reported on November 28, 2015 Arun Kumar Jain (IRS IT:1978) has been appointed new Chairman of Central Board of Direct Taxes . The post fell vacant on November 30.
Though he replaced Ms Anita Kapoor (IRS IT:1978) but he will have a very short tenure.
Scheduled to superannuated on January 31, 2016, Jain would attempt for two months extension beyond superannuation as Budget 2016-17 would be on Govt’s top most priority.
But insiders say that he may not be given extension as S K Ray (IRS IT:1978), Member CBDT, could be the dark horse after Jain retires on January 31, 2016.
