By IndianMandarins- 31 Jul 2018


Indianmandarins has reliably learnt that Shambhu Singh (lAS:1986:MN) may be appointed Chairman, National Highway Authority (NHAI), a post which fell vacant due to the repatriation of Deepak Kumar (IAS:1984:BH) in May this year.

At present, secretary in MoRTH Y S Mallik (IAS:1983:HY) is holding the additional charge of Chairman, NHAI whereas Shambhu Singh has been serving with the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways as Additional Secretary and Financial Adviser since March this year. Singh was on 19 July empanelled to hold Secretary Equivalent post in Govt of India.
The position of NHAI chairman is crucial as the country has a huge target of roads and highways’ construction and maintenance. But at least three chairmen have been changed within a span of thirty-three moths. As per rule, NHAI chairman should get three years fixed tenure.
