S N Sahai is interim Delhi chief Secy

Senior IAS officer S N Sahai was on Saturday appointed as “interim” Chief Secretary of the Delhi government till a regular appointment is made.

Sahai, a 1986-batch Union Territory cadre officer, took charge from D M Spolia, who retired on Saturday, official sources said.

A regular appointment for the top bureaucratic post of the Delhi government will be made soon, they said.

Earlier, Home Ministry officials said senior IAS officer R S Negi, who was the first choice of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for the Chief Secretary’s post, is unlikely to be appointed for the post as he is too junior and not in the apex pay scale.

This was conveyed by the Home Ministry to the Delhi government and gave it two other options to choose the next top bureaucrat for the city government, the sources said.
