In a minor administrative reshuffle four senior IAS officials have been moved to new positions
Winds of change have been blowing strong in one of the biggest states in the country. The Maharashtra government recently triggered a minor administrative reshuffle. As per an order issued by the General Administration Department on Thursday an IAS officer of 1996 batch, Vinita Vaid Singhal, Secretary to the Tribal Department has been handed the reins of the Secretary of the Labour Department.
Her stint as the Secretary of the Tribal Department was rather brief. She was assigned this position on June 21st, early this year. According to the order, Singhal will replace Rajesh Kumar, 1988 batch IAS officer, as the Secretary, Labour department.
The order brought in a change for Anup Kumar Yadav, the Commissioner of Health and Family Welfare and Mission Director of the National Health Mission. Yadav has been appointed Secretary, Tribal Department, that was left vacant in the wake of Singhal’s relocation to the Labour Department. Yadav, a 2002 batch IAS officer, was knee-deep in the battle against COVID-19 ahead of his transfer last month.
The Anup Kumar Yadav’s position in the Health Department was filled by a 2004-batch IAS officer, Parimal Singh. Therefore, Singh is the new Commissioner to the Health and Family Welfare Department.
Similarly, the order is set to affect Dilip Halde, a 2010-batch IAS officer and the Raigad Zilla Parishad CEO will soon be heading the Maharashtra State Co-operative Marketing Federation, Mumbai, as its Managing Director.
