NITI Aayog: Saha and Pai tipped to become Senior Advisers

By IndianMandarins- 16 May 2019


Indianmandarins has reliably learnt that two internal candidates may be appointed as Senior Adviser in NITI Aayog. This has been so as 13 candidates were shortlisted for selection through interviews that were held on Wednesday.


Both Sanjoy Kumar Saha (IRSEE) and Ajit Pai (a private sector professional) are internal candidates from the Aayog.


Presently, Saha is adviser at Yojna Bhavan. Thus, he is going to be moved a rung above to become Senior Adviser.


In case of Ajit Pai he may get a fresh lease of career on selection by NITI Aayog. His appointment as OSD is coterminous with NITI Aayog Vice Chairman Rajiv Kumar whose term ends next month, or in June this year. Pai is reportedly expected to be selected and appointed to look after Aayog’s Economy vertical.


Saha while working in NITI Aayog secured cadre clearance from the Ministry of Railways for further deputation outside the cadre. 


As reported earlier nine candidates finally got a chance to cast their hats in the ring for five posts of Adviser and Senior Adviser, including two marked for internal candidates.
