Paving ways for their prospective juniors three secretaries (GoI) will superannuate on July 31. Alok Rawat Alok Rawat (IAS:1977:SK), Secretary, Department of Administrative Reforms & Public Grievances; Ms Vandana Kumari Jena (IAS:1979:OR), Secretary, Department of Land Resources and Lalit K Panwar (IAS:1979:RJ), Secretary for Tourism.
Appointment of successor to Alok Rawat has already taken place and Devendra Chaudhary (IAS:1981:HY) will succeed him on July 31 whereas appointment of successors of Ms Jena and Ms Panwar are expected before July 20.
Keep guessing whom Narendra Modi picks up for Ministry of Tourism and Department of Land Resources. Three IAS officers from 1981 batch are yet to be posted and few from 1980 batch are eagerly looking for better departments.
