The constitution of search-cum-selection-committee for the post of CMD, OIL has opened avenues for serving CMDs as well as for those who have not completed two years stint as CMD of a CPSE.
Indianmandarins has reliably learnt that Manoj Mishra, CMD of National Fertilizer Corporation Ltd, has also applied for the post which is being run through an ad-hoc arrangement under U P Singh (Additional Secretary, Petroleum). Singh (IAS:1985) was was given the additional charge of CMD, OIL following the retirement of S K Srivastava on June 30, 2015.
if spme well-placed sources are to be believed the Department of Fertilizers (administrative department of NFL) had initially objected to Mishra’s candidature but it relented after realizing that his application does not fall under job-hopping category. The SCSC route is considered as an opportunity open to all.
After the PESB route failed to find suitable candidate thrice, a five-member SCSC was constituted pick up a new CMD.
