Tamil Nadu: Batchmates became CS & DGP

By IndianMandarins- 29 Jun 2019


The Tamil Nadu Govt appointed K Shanmugam (IAS:1985:TN) and J K Tripathy (IPS:1985:TN) as the Chief Secretary and DGP (Law and Order) and State police chief.


Shanmugam replaces Girija Vaidyanathan who retires from the service on June 30, 2019. His long stint in the Finance Dept has helped him get the coveted post, despite being 6th on the seniority list.


Further, J K Tripathy, a native of Odisha, was picked as the new DGP from a list of six candidates vetted by the UPSC. Tripathi replaces T K Rajendran, whose term ends on June 30, 2019.
