Khati as DG HR and Manjula as Member Finance: ACC approval awaited

By IndianMandarins- 27 May 2020


Indianmandarins has reliably learned that the Railway Board headed by CRB Vinod Kumar Yadav has sent two apex grade proposals to the ACC last week. The proposal appears in consonance with the framework of combined IRMS cadre yet the Recruitment Rules (RR) are yet to be framed for both the posts.


Reportedly, Mrs Manjula Rangrajan (IRAS) may be appointed as Member Finance and A S Khati (IRPS) may be appointed as Director General HR. Presently, Mrs Mnjula is Additional Member Finance and Khati is Additional Member Staff in Railway Board.


As per the Cabinet approval, both are of apex level posts and are open to all services yet officers proposed for the posts belong to the respective IRAS and IRPS cadre to which these posts were earlier earmarked for.    


Interestingly, the combined Indian Railways cadre IRMS and a smaller restructured Railway Board was announced with a lot of fanfare earlier in December last year. This turned out to be a ground for giving an extension to CRB however that seems to have served its purpose. In the backdrop of the COVID crisis it was declared that IRMS will not be possible this year.
