Bajaj, senior IAS officer, seeks VRS

By IndianMandarins- 02 Nov 2018


The 1987 batch Tamil Nadu cadre IAS officer, Jasbir Singh Bajaj has moved the application for VRS ten months ahead of his scheduled retirement on 31 July 2019.


According to rules, he has requested the Govt to relieve him from duties and responsibilities of the service on the expiry of three months notice period beginning 01 October 2018. Bajaj started his career with CBI and later in August 1987, he joined IAS. 


Currently, he is serving as the Principal Resident Commissioner at Tamil Nadu House in New Delhi.


It may be mentioned that probably Bajaj has the longest tenure as Resident Commissioner/Principal Resident Commissioner. Reportedly, he has served at  TN House for over 17 years. It is said under his supervision TN House became the first State Guest House to have ISO 9001 certification.


Having six professional degrees in Public Administration, Management and Law from reputed institutions, Bajaj may pursue the legal practice.  


Interestingly, Bajaj's VRS application is seen as one of the finest cases of a smooth transition as Bajaj has already delegated almost all decisionmaking & executive powers to his junior colleague N Murugandam (IAS:1991: TN) who too has been serving as Principal Resident Commissioner, TN House.
