The search-cum-selection-committee for DVC chairman reportedly met on 11th September. The Union Cabinet Secretary conferred on Skype with the members on the issue.
Reportedly, two top executives have emerged as front runners: R N Singh, Executive Director of Power Grid Corporation, and TSC Bosh, Executive Director (Programme Management Division-I) Rural  Electrification Limited.
Bosh was drafted in REC at a senior position a long time ago.

Further, it is learnt that a dark-horse has emerged as a stronger contender than Singh and Bosh.
It may be underlined that DVC Chairman's post was advertised in the third week of June 2020 to be filled on a deputation basis through Search-cum-Selection Committee (SCSC).

Presently, NTPC CMD Gurdeep Singh is holding the additional charge of DVC as Chairman since October 2018.

DVC is a power utility jointly owned by the center and the state governments of West Bengal and Jharkhand and operates power plants in the Damodar River area of the region.
