New Delhi, Sep 1: Tripura cadre 1992-batch IAS officer Sriram Taranikanti, currently serving as an additional secretary and financial adviser in the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) will replace Gujarat-cadre 1989-batch IAS officer Katikithala Srinivas as the director of the Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration in the rank and pay of a Union secretary.
The order was issued on Thursday by the prime minister-led Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC).
In the major secretary-level bureaucratic reshuffle, another Tripura-cadre 1992-batch IAS officer Shashi Ranjan Kumar, serving as an additional secretary and financial adviser in the Ministry of Textiles, has been appointed secretary in the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) in the rank and pay of secretary to the Government of India by temporarily upgrading the post, replacing Telangana-cadre IAS officer Vasudha Mishra (retired) by curtailing her period of re-employment, as per the order.
The ACC has modified its previous order which had appointed Bihar-cadre IAS officer Chanchal Kumar, who is serving as an Officer on Special Duty (OSD) in the Ministry of Civil Aviation, to the post.
According to the latest order, Kumar has been appointed as secretary in the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region, where he will replace Tripura-cadre 1989-batch IAS officer Lok Ranjan upon his appointment as an administrative member in the Central Administrative Tribunal.
The Centre also appointed 1992-batch Manipur cadre IAS officers Vumlunmang Vualnam and 1992-batch Tamil Nadu cadre IAS officer Neeraj Mittal as new secretaries in the Ministry of Civil Aviation and the Department of Telecommunications respectively.
