Indianmandarins has reliably learnt that former Petroleum Secretary Kapil Dev Tripathy (Retd IAS:1980:AM) may be appointed Chairman of the Public-sector Headhunter (PESB) by the second week of September. The top post had fallen vacant in July 2017 following the appointment of Sanjay Kothari (Retd IAS:1978: HY) as Secretary to the President of India.


Currently, Ms Gauri Kumar (Retd IAS:1979:GJ) is chairing the selection board Under ad-hoc arrangement but she too will be completing her tenure on 28 September 2018. Acting PESB Chairman Anshuman Kumar Das relinquished the charge on completion of tenure on 18 August 2018 as Member, PESB.
