With over 60 senior IAS officers waiting their turn for secretary-level posting in Govt of India it appears a completely adverse ratio between the number of aspirants, claimants and number of posts NaMo administration has to offer. In addition, two more Secretary-level posts are on offer which are encadred for Indian Legal Service and Indian Foreign Service cadre officers.

Only one post is anticipated to be offered to an IAS officer this month as Shobhana K Pattanayak (IAS:1982:KN), Secretary Agriculture Co-operation & Farmers Welfare is retiring this month end. The post of Secretary, Panchayati Raj too lying vacant. Reportedly, the Govt of India may notify the appointment to secretary-level posts by the month end. Though few other posts are also on offer e.g. NHAI and IWAI etc but they are all under process and may take couple of weeks to be filled up.  

It may be underlined that Binoy Kumar (IAS:1983:TG) and Pushpa Subramanyam (IAS:1985:AP), on Friday, assumed offices as Secretary Steel and Food Processing respectively.
