AIIMS-Delhi director Randeep Guleria is likely to get another extension of three months, official sources said on Wednesday.

The tenure extension is likely with the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC) headed by the prime minister on June 20 seeking a wider panel of names for the post of director of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here.

Dr Guleria was appointed as AIIMS, New Delhi, director for a term of five years on March 28, 2017.

His tenure, which was set to end on March 24, was extended by three months.

In March this year, the names of three doctors, short-listed by a search-cum-selection committee and subsequently approved by the Institute Body, the top decision-making body of the AIIMS, were sent to the ACC for final approval.

"...the Competent Authority in the ACC has directed to return the instant proposal with the request to send a wider panel of names for consideration of the ACC, stated an office memorandum sent to the Union Health Ministry by the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Department of Personnel and Training on June 20.

The three doctors whose names were recommended earlier were Nikhil Tandon, head of the department of endocrinology; Rajesh Malhotra, chief of Trauma Centre and the head of the department of orthopaedics; and Pramod Garg, professor in the gastroenterology department.
