Will Agrawal be the new Chief Secretary of Gujarat?

By IndianMandarins- 25 Nov 2019


Many developments are taking place in Gujarat bureaucracy swiftly. The DPC cleared seven names for ACS rank promotion; announcement of full-time Police Commissioner for Ahmedabad too is inching closer. The next immediate thing in the state is announcement of successor to the outgoing Chief Secretary Jagdip Narayan Singh (IAS:1983:GJ) who is completing his extended tenure this week. Several names from 1985 and 1986 batch have been doing rounds for the top job but Indianmandarins has learnt that the coveted post may go to a 1984 batch IAS officer with Arvind Agrawal as Singh’s likely successor. Though he has only five months to retire but in view of previous records Gujarat Govt appears to be liberal enough in giving extension to the head of bureaucracy. If that be the case, Agrawal will have a ten months long tenure as Chief Secretary.
