Even though the Modi Govt has exhibited the advanced succession planning at least in the case of PESB; the top officials across country’s PSUs are curious to see (almost) new composition of PESB appointed by the new regime at Centre except one; R Gopalan who has tenure April 2016.
‘Indianmandarins’ reliably learns that Ms Gauri Kumar (Rtd IAS:1979:GJ) will take over from K M Acharya (Rtd IAS:1974:MP) on September 28 as Member, PESB. Having retired on August 31 Ms Kumar has made her fortune for another five years as with PESB vice Acharya.
Acharya is completing his tenure on September 27 (Sunday) this year but practically he will mark the concluding day as Member PESB on September 24 only as GoI would observe holidays on Sept 25 & Sept 26.
From September 28 onwards the PESB would comprise of; Ajit Kumar Seth (Rtd IAS:1974:UP), as Chairman and R Gopalan (Rtd IAS:1976:TN), Ms Gauri Kumar (Rtd IAS:1979:GJ) & Anshuman Das (former CMD, NALCO) as Member.
