Road to Raisina hills goes from PESB?

It is a sheer coincidence but yet remarkable. Former PESB Chairman Sanjay Kothari was abruptly made Secretary to the President years before he completed his tenure at PESB. Now, Kothari’s predecessor at PESB Kapil Dev Tripathy too was suddenly drafted as Kothari’s successor at Raisina hills. Coincidence but yet remarkable.

Bala Prasad tipped to become Secretary to President?

By IndianMandarins 20 Apr 2020

Indianmandarins has reliably learned that Dr E L S N Bala Prasad (IAS:1986:BH) may be appointed as Secretary to the President; a post which will fall vacant after Sanjay Kothari takes oath as Chief Vigilance Commissioner. Presently, he is working in the President Secretariat as Special Secretary to The President. It is believed that the new Secretary’s appointment may be on co-terminus basis with the President.

Reportedly, a senior IAS officer’s name was tossed for the coveted position but Bala Prasad remained as the first choice for the job who still has a year long term in service.
