Secretary, DIPAM: Khachi’s repatriation adds a spin

By IndianMandarins- 24 Oct 2019


Hardly had DIPAM (Disinvestment) Secretary Anil Khachi (IAS:1986:HP) completed 90 days at the Centre when the NaMo administration, on Tuesday, announced his premature repatriation to cadre state of Himachal Pradesh leaving many of his peers clueless about the reasons behind the decision.

Indianmandarins has reliably learnt that Kachi’s abrupt premature repatriation has added a spin to the appointment of the next Chief Secretary of the state. The outgoing CS Shrikant Baldi (IAS:1985:HP) is retiring in December this year.

It remains to be seen whether Sanjeev Gupta (IAS: 1985: HP) presently secretary, Inter State Council Secretariat will also prefer to return to his cadre and stake his claim for the coveted job. Several insiders appear to have assumed that Jai Ram Thakur-led BJP Govt in Himachal has all along ignored officers on central deputation while considering appointments to the post of Chief Secretary.
