In power corridors the incumbent SSIS (MHA), Ashok Prasad (IPS:1979:AP), is being seen as next CEO of National Intelligence Grid (NATGRID). Prasad, Spl Director IB, has a proven track-record of handling the complex law & order as DGP, J&K.
The post of CEO, NATGRID has been running vacant since June 01 as Raghu Raman, the erstwhile ECO, had demitted the office on May 31, 2014.
Reportedly, the process of advertisement of vacancy has been initiated but the file still lies with MHA. ‘Indianmandarins’ has reliably learnt that the vacancy may be advertised by the month of September-October. Interestingly, Ashok Prasad is scheduled to superannuate on January 31, 2016. Even if post is advertised by September-October 2015 the appointment process will take approx three months which coincides with Mr Prasad’s superannuation i.e. January 2016.
Gossips go on.
