Indianmandarins has learnt that P K Agrawal’s prospects for appointment as Director (Domestic Division), CONCOR has run into trouble. He is currently serving as CEO, CONCOR, and was selected for Director (DD) by PESB on December 31, 2015. This appointment is subject to ACC clearance.
Reportedly, CVC has observed that the ongoing old vigilance inquiry matter (while Agrawal served as CGM, Western Zone, CONCOR) was abruptly dropped before the selection interview was held. Since the CVC consent was not sought before dropping the inquiry, it’s said to be annoyed with the process followed and has made its views known to the power that be.
In case the apprehensions finally prove to be mere apprehensions Agrawal will succeed Arvind Bhatnagar, the outgoing Director, on July 01 this year.
