A top official in the government said the files pertaining to the appointment of Gautam and Gehlot were sent to the Home Ministry just after the city Cabinet decision to remove Mishra.
"But the file is still pending with the MHA," the official said.
According to the official, works in the sectors like water, tourism, social welfare and women and child welfare are getting affected as these departments are "headless" for quite some times.
Mishra had the portfolio of water, tourism, art and culture.
No new face had replaced Kumar and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has been taking care of his portfolios - social welfare, women and child welfare and others.
