RERA: Jigsaw puzzle of appointments in Himachal

By IndianMandarins- 25 Nov 2019


The entire bureaucracy in Himachal Pradesh has been anxiously watching the appointment of next Chairperson of RERA in the state. Himachal Pradesh RERA has advertised the position for appointment in a hush-hush manner giving just 20 days to apply for the post.

Immediately after the advertisement of the vacancy, the outgoing Chief Secretary Dr Srikant Baldi (IAS:1985:HP), retiring next month, gave up the charge of the housing department to ensure that there are no allegations of conflict of interest.

What brings insight into this prospect is the fact that just five months ahead of his retirement, Baldi was given charge of the Housing Department in August which he never handled before. If some top sources are to be believed, it is to make him eligible for the post of Chairman RERA since he has no experience of housing sector. Is the jigsaw puzzle of appointment in HP bureaucracy solved?
