As the Chhattisgarh government relieved the IAS BVR Subramaniam for Jammu and Kashmir, the government has now announced new name for the post of state Home Secretary.
As per the order issued early on Wednesday evening, IAS Amitabh Jain has been assigned the post of Principal Secretary (Home).
He would also be responsible for the finance department as Principal Secretary.
Amitabh Jain is a 1989 batch IAS officer.
The decision could have been due to the fact that Amitabh Jain had earlier assumed charge of home department during the leave of BVR Subramaniam.
The 1987 batch Subramaniam has been relieved by the Chhattisgarh government and he would now be at the disposal of the Jammu and Kashmir government.
He may also land the job of the Advisor to the Governor there.>
