Prime Minister Narendra Modi appointed Dr. Pramod Kumar Mishra as his new Principal Secretary. PK Mishra will take the charge from today only. He will replace Nripendra Misra.

Dr. Pramod Kumar Mishra is a 1972-batch IAS (Indian Administrative Officer) belonging to Gujarat cadre. He has a rich experience of diverse fields in governance issues. He had earlier held the post of Secretary (Agriculture & Cooperation) and Chairman (State Electricity Regulatory Commission). The officer has also received the celebrated UN award for disaster management and disaster risk reduction.

In another top-notch appointment in the bureaucracy, PK Sinha (Officer on Special Duty in the Prime Minister’s Office) has been appointed as the Principal Advisor to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi. His tenure is also set to start from today.

The outgoing Nripendra Misra is a retired 1967 batch Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer from the Uttar Pradesh cadre. He had held the office of Principal Secretary to Prime Minister for almost 5 years. The officer had previously served as the chairperson of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India. He had also held the post of Telecom Secretary of India and Fertilizers Secretary of India.

Earlier on September 9, Prime Minister had organized a farewell event at his residence to honor the contributions of Nripendra Misra as a civil servant. It is said that Nripendra Misra is one of the most trusted aides of the Prime Minister. In the event, Prime Minister described the outgoing Nripendra Mishra as a “precious treasure“. Narendra Modi also lauded his “dedication towards work and hard-working nature”.

Prime Minister in a tweeted message wished him the good luck for future prospects.
