Future moves

There is much speculation in Dilli about the future of chairman of the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) Sushil Chandra. Chandra is scheduled to retire in May-end, but it is being said that the Centre is likely to give him another extension. It may be recalled that Mr Chandra was scheduled to retire last May but less than a month ahead of his retirement, the Modi sarkar re-appointed him as CBDT chairman. The speculation has been triggered by the fact that while the government is going ahead with the process of appointments for two posts of Members in CBDT, it has not made any move towards filling the vacancy that would arise after Mr Chandra retires. Curiously, some believe that there is a high likelihood that Chandra may take over from 1984-batch IPS officer Karnal Singh as head of the Enforcement Directorate (ED). Mr Singh is rumoured to be tipped for the position of Vigilance Commissioner in the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC). Watch this space for updates.
