Nripendra Mishra appointed Principal Secretary, P K Mishra Additional Principal Secretary to PM Modi
Senior IAS officers Nripendra Misra and P.K. Mishra have been given extension as Principal Secretary and Additional Principal Secretary, respectively, to Prime Minister Narendra Modi with effect from May 31. The two have also been assigned Cabinet minister ranks.
The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet on Tuesday approved the appointment of the two officials (retired), stating that their appointment will be "co-terminus with the term of the Prime Minister or until further orders, whichever is earlier".
National Security Adviser (NSA) Ajit Doval, who oversaw at least two cross-border military actions during the last five years, was on June 3 accorded an upgrade in his level to the Cabinet minister rank along with an extension of five years, co-terminus with the tenure of the Prime Minister.
