The search for the successor of erstwhile founding CEO of NATGRID Raghu Raman still goes on. After Rajiv Gauba (IAS:1982:JH), Additional Secretary, MHA, repatriated to Jharkhand as CS the additional charge of CEO, NATGRID remains with Rajiv Arora (IAS:1987:HY), Joint Secretary, NATGRID (National Intelligence Grid) under MHA. Arora was laterally shifted from Department of Commerce to NATGRID as JS on November 02, 2014.
Though the search & selection committee has been doing its bit since long, no concrete development has taken as yet. Meanwhile the name of Sanjay Govind Dhande (former Director of IIT, Kanpur) has also been doing rounds for the post of CEO, NATGRID. The post has been running vacant since June 2014 after Raghu Raman completed his tenure on May 31, 2014.
