The coming year would witness a complete revamp of the UT Administration with most of the top brass set to complete their terms. Apart from the IAS officers, including the Adviser and the secretaries, several PCS and HCS officers are also nearing the end of their tenures.
UT Adviser K K Sharma would be completing three years in office in February. In June this year, Sharma was promoted from Additional Secretary grade to Secretary grade. His predecessor Pradip Mehra had served in the post for four years, having received extension.
The tenure of UT Home Secretary Anil Kumar would be ending at the end of next year. The 1988 batch IAS officer of Haryana cadre had taken charge in the city in December 2011. In the past two years of his tenure, several departments have been taken away from him and distributed among other officers, the most recent being the charge of the Transport department.
Among the first bureaucrats to be repatriated at the beginning of the year would be Finance Secretary V K Singh. A panel had been sought from Punjab several weeks ago. While 1990 batch IAS officer Anurag Aggarwal was the choice of the UT Administration, 1992 batch officer Sarvjit Singh has received clearance from the Ministry of Home Affairs. The term of the incumbent Finance Secretary would end in January.
IT Secretary Prerna Puri, a 2006 batch AGMUT cadre IAS officer, has been serving in the city for the past seven years, having received four extensions. Orders for her transfer to Arunachal Pradesh were received in December 2011,. However, these were revoked and she was given a year's extension. In March 2013, she was given the fourth extension for a year.
The transfer orders of two bureaucrats - ADC Tanvi Garg and CEO of Chandigarh Housing Board Rodney L Ralte - to Mizoram were received a few months back. After the imposition of the code of conduct due to the Assembly elections, the transfers were stalled. Further communication pertaining to the two officers is awaited.
