‘Indianmandarins’ has reliably learnt that PM Narendra Modi’s wish-list for the coveted post of Cabinet Secretary has almost reached its final stage. The the pattern in which Ajit Kumar Seth (IAS:UP:1974) was given third consecutive extension (on December 05, 2014) had made it pertinent that ‘elimination method’ has been in action to pave way for the choicest officer.

DoPT Secretary Sanjay Kothari (IAS:HY:1978), Power Secretary P K Sinha (IAS:UP:1978) and Finance Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi (IAS:1978:RJ) have reportedly emerged as the final contenders for the post.

Going by few specific inputs and reading between dozens of senior appointments in recent months indicate that as many these three officers would remain in the race till Ajit Seth would conclude his extended tenure in June this year.
