Jha’s name in circulation for Secretary, DFS



The scheduled superannuation of R P Watal (IAS:1978:AP) and expected lateral shift of Ms Anjuli Chib Duggal (IAS:1981:PB) to Dept of Expenditure has fueled speculations that Ajay Narayan Jha (IAS:1982:AM) may replace Ms Duggal as Secretary, Dept of Financial Services. Jha was elevated to the rank of Special Secretary, Dept of Expenditure on September 08, 2015.
