By IndianMandarins- 27 Apr 2020


If some top sources are to be believed members of the Search Committee held a meeting on Saturday morning to select the new Chairman of the public-sector headhunter i.e. Public Enterprise Selection Board (PESB). If everything goes right, the PESB may get a new chairman in a couple of weeks.

The Chairman post fell vacant after Kapil Dev Tripathy (Retd IAS:1980:AM) was moved to Raisina Hills as Secretary to President of India Ram Nath Kovind.

It may be underlined that presently, only two members are there on the Board; former Railway Board chairman M K Gupta and Rear Admiral Shekhar Mital. Posts of chairman and a member are vacant.

Sources said that the position of a member may continue to remain vacant as the search committee discussed the post of Chairman only.

The committee, headed by PS to PM Dr P K Misra, comprises of Union Cabinet Secretary Rajiv Gauba, DoPT Secretary C Chandramouli, Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla, Finance Secretary Atanu Chakraborty and Public Enterprise Secretary Sailesh.
