Indian Revenue Service officers Satish Kumar Gupta and Krishan Mohan Prasad have been appointed new members in the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT), a government order said on Tuesday.

The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC), headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, issued the order approving the appointment of the 1984-batch IRS officers of the Income Tax Department cadre.

While Gupta is currently posted as Principal Chief Commissioner (PCCIT) of I-T in Mumbai, Prasad is serving as the PCCIT of National e-assessment centre in Delhi.

The CBDT, which frames policy for the tax department, is headed by a chairman and has six other senior IRS officials as its member.

All of them are in the rank of special secretary.

The board is currently headed by Chairman P C Mody, while Prasana Kumar Dash, Prabhash Shankar and Seema Khorana Patra are the serving members.

With new appointments, there will still be a vacancy of one member in the CBDT.
