Rao named new BHEL chairman

The Prime Minister's office has approved an order naming BHEL's current director of industrial systems and products BP Rao, as the state-owned navaratna's newest chairman and managing director. The decision was made after a year of inter-governmental politics which led to a shift in employment requirements for the position, ultimately resulting in Rao's appointment.

Rao has spent all the 33 years of his professional career with BHEL, starting as a trainee in Bangalore and moving up the ranks. He will take charge on Thursday.
