Next Revenue Secretary - Pandey or Murmu?

By IndianMandarins- 12 Nov 2018


Indianmandarins has reliably learnt that three names have been doing the rounds for the coveted post of Revenue Secretary. It is learnt that the NaMo administration may announce the name of the OSD of Department of Revenue this week - about 15 days ahead of the retirement of the outgoing Revenue Secretary Hasmukh Adhia (IAS:1981: GJ) who is retiring on 30 November 2018.


Indianmandarins has reliably learnt that Ajay Bhushan Pandey (IAS:1984:MH) may be named as successor to Adhia. Pandey currently serves as CEO, UIDAI and also as Chairman of the GST Network.


At the same time, Girish Chandra Murmu's (IAS:1985:GJ) chances may not be ruled out for several reasons. He has been made to acquire requisite experience first by induction in the Department of Expenditure, then Additional Secretary, DFS, and later in Dept of Revenue where he was elevated as Special Secretary. Throughout his central deputation, Murmu was found suitable for a job under the Ministry of Finance which clearly signals about the administrations' trust in him.


If some top sources are to be believed Petroleum Secretary M M Kutty (IAS:1985:UT) and Corporate Affairs Secretary Injeti Srinivas (IAS:1983:OR) are also in the reckoning.
