‘Indianmandarins’ has reliably learnt that the selection interview for the post of CMD, BHEL is expected to be scheduled for June 04, 2015. The candidates shortlisting of candates is also also in its final stage. PESB had advertised the post of CMD in the first week of February this year.
The incumbent CMD, B Prasad Rao, will now expected to continue till December 31, 2015 who had got extension for two years beyond his superannuation on December 2013.
After Modi government took the driving seat in May 2014 both the process went simultaneously; firstly, the re-examination of extension (beyond superannuation) to B Prasad Rao as CMD, BHEL and secondly the revalidation of PESB’s recommendation of Prakash Chand for the post of CMD, BHEL.
The scenario is now clear that the fresh selection would pave way for a new CMD for BHEL. The entire public sector is keenly waiting to see who will take the baton from B P rao as the chief of BHEL, ‘The Maharatna’.
