Six Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officers of J&K cadre have been promoted to the apex scale by the State Administrative Council (SAC).
The SAC headed by Governor Satya Pal Malik has approved the promotion of Sudhanshu Panday, Pardip Kumar Tripathi, Arun Kumar Mehta, Sandeep Kumar Nayak, Atal Dulloo and Umang Narula to the apex scale of IAS with effect from February 1, 2019, an official statement issued late last evening said.
These IAS officers belong to 1987, 1988 and 1989 batches of IAS who were allotted J&K cadre after their selection to the coveted service.
These officers will now be designated as Financial Commissioners instead of Principal Secretaries of their administrative departments.
