No IAS officer in the headless headhunter?

By IndianMandarins- 22 Apr 2020


Following the appointment of PESBchairman K D Tripathi as Secretary to the President, a rare situation has arrived in the public-sector headhunter when no IAS officer is there on the headless Board.

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. Power corridors are abuzz whether a former IAS officer would be drafted as PESB chairman. It is also to be seen whether the chairman would be junior to the other two members or one of these members itself would be made chairman of the selection board.
