Pradeep Kumar, the incumbent Member (Staff), has been given additional charge (Look After) of Member (Electrical), Railway Board. ACC has approved the additional charge to Kumar for three months w.e.f. January 01, 2016. He will hold the additional charge till March 31, 2016.
Even as pre-Budget work gathers speed, the railways ministry is functioning without Member (Electrical). The post has remained vacant for long. It appears the name picked up and communicated by the Railways has not carried favours with ACC because the PMO is said to have been informed that the career of the officer in question is marked by allegations. Reportedly the officer failed to earn clearances from IB & CVC.
