Ajay Mathur may join TERI next month despite Pachuri’s power play



Ajay Mathur, head of Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), may finally take over as new Director of The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) next month. This is despite the fact that he had recently expressed his displeasure and raised concerns over “independent functioning” after the Institute’s governing Council decided to appoint Pachauri as Executive Vice Chairman of the Governing Council (GC) of TERI.
Mathur had sent two mails to the GC arguing the Director General’s job must entail complete and full control. He was prompted by one of the GC’s foreign members proposing that Pachauri be given operational powers as Executive VC of the GC. The proposal is said to be under consideration.
