Senior IRS officer Jayant Misra has been appointed as Director General of Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI). Misra was appointed as ending eight months of vacancy of the post.

Misra is currently DG (Systems) at the Directorate General of Systems and Data Management. Najib Shah, who is now Chairman of Central Board of Excise and Customs, was holding the charge of DG DRI. Shah was in May last year appointed Member in the board, apex policy making body for indirect taxes. Senior bureaucrat S Ramesh has been appointed DG (Systems) in place of Misra. Ramesh at present is Chief Commissioner of Customs in Chennai.
