It would be a ‘Coal Week’ for the public sector headhunter next week. Ever since it started (Feb last week) scheduling the selection interviews for board level posts in CPSEs, almost every working day it has been holding selection interviews. Not only for the PESB board members but Coal Secretary Sushil Kumar (IAS:1982:UP) will dedicate his four working days to the selection interviews.
Every consecutive day beginning 13 June, the PESB is expected to hold selection interviews for board level positions in coal sector PSUs. On June 13, there may be interviews to select the CMD for Northern Coalfields Ltd (Singrauli Coal Mines) whereas on June 14 it may select the new CMD for Bharat Coking Coal Limited. After the selection interview (June 15) for the post of Director (Tech) for Coal India, the PESB would conclude its ‘Coal Week’ on June 16 with the interview for the post of CMD, Coal India Ltd.
It is a sheer coincidence that initially, the PESB had proposed June 20 for the interview for CIL CMD but Coal Secretary was probably not available on that day and it was preponed for June 16. And the very coincidence turned it into a virtual ‘Coal Week’ for the public sector headhunter.
