Indianmandarins has reliably learnt that even as a search for a successor to Anoop Mishra (IAS:1978:UP) goes on, the possibility of the Lok Sabha Secretary General getting an extension can’t be ruled out. Reportedly, Mishra may soon get an extension for another three months beyond 30th November when the term of his appointment on contract basis will be over. Mishra was appointed as the General Secretary of Lok Sabha on December 1, 2014.
According to sources, the incumbent Lok Sabha Secretary D K Bhalla (IAS:1986:NL) is the main claimant but the extension prospects appear to have marred his chance for the post.
The extension/appointment issue is expected to be decided this week.
