Power Secretary Pradeep Kumar Pujari has been given the additional charge of the Department of Telecommunications (DoT).

"The competent authority has approved the assignment of additional charge of the post of Secretary, Department of Telecommunications, to Pradeep Kumar Pujari IAS (GJ: 1981), Secretary, Ministry of Power, with immediate effect and until further order," an Appointments Committee of the Cabinet said in an order.

Last week, the government had moved J S Deepak, a 1982-batch IAS officer from Uttar Pradesh cadre, from the telecom ministry to the commerce ministry as Officer on Special Duty (OSD) with immediate effect.

Deepak will be India's next Ambassador to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) from June this year.
