Indianmandarins has learnt that Alok Ranjan (IAS:1978:UP), the outgoing Chief Secretary to the Govt of UP, is expected to get extension beyond superannuation. He is scheduled to retire on March 31, 2016. Untill last week power corridors were abuzz of Alok Ranjan’s prospects for post retirement berth as Chairman of UP Public Service Commission.
The appointment of Dr Anuruddha Singh Yadav (Principal, G B Pant College, Badayun) on March 11 as new Chairman of UPPSC has further sharpened prospects for extension to Alok Ranjan.
One may like to recall that Dr S K Jain functioned as acting chairman of UPPSC after the tainted and ousted Chairman Dr Anil Yadav was removed in October last year following Allahabad HC’s directives.
