The countdown has started off for the appointment of new SEBI Chief. The departing boss U K Sinha (BH:IAS:1976) is set to complete his tenure next week (February 17). Having only six days left in hand power corridors are abuzz with speculations about new incumbent.
U K Sinha (BH:IAS:1976) assumed office as SEBI Chairman on February 18, 2011 for three years and was later given two-year extension. Still he is eligible (as per age) for one-year extension but the selection of new SEBI Chief is expected in a couple of days.
Earlier Indianmandarins had reported (weblinks attached below) that Ms Arundhati Bhattacharya (SBI Chairman), Ramesh Abhishek (BH:IAS1982) and Rajiv Kumar Agarwal (Whole-Time Member of SEBI) were in the race for the job.
