New Secretaries Appointed

The NDA government carried out a major reshuffle at the top bureaucratic level, bringing in new Secretaries to steer the crucial Ministries of Agriculture, Telecom and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, indicating a willingness and determination to change course based on performance.

The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi approved 10 Secretary level shifts, including four appointments made to fill vacancies arising as the incumbents are about to retire.
Among the most significant changes was the move to replace Telecom Secretary Rakesh Garg with Uttar Pradesh cadre IAS officer J.S. Deepak, who is at present Secretary in the Department of Electronics and Information Technology.

The 1981 batch officer Amarendra Sinha was holding additional charge as Secretary to the Minority Affairs Ministry till now.
Separately, Krishan Kumar Jalan, a 1982 batch IAS Haryana cadre officer, who was serving as Central Provident Fund Commissioner for over two and a half years, has been 
appointed the new Secretary for the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises. The incumbent, Anup Pujari, is about to retire.
