The entanglement over the selection of four posts of Member, CBEC is still on. Committee of Secretaries is yet to take a decision on representations of two senior officers in the queue for CBEC Member. DGHR (CBEC) Ms Neerja Shah (IRS C&CE:1979) & Chief Commissioner (Mumbai-I CX) V S Krishnan (IRS C&CE:1979) had to give representations after COS did not consider their names for the post of Member.
Reportedly, few weeks back Finance Minister had written to the Cabinet Secretary for review of COS decision. Appointment of four Members will take place only after the COS will take decision on the representation of Ms Shah and Mr Krishnan. Till the time CBEC is forced to function with a Chairman and two members only. CBEC is indeed in troubles.
