Srinet is a 1993 batch officer of Indian Revenue Service.
The appointment of Sanjay Srinet as head of UPPSC will expedite the process of recruitment. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has ensured flawless recruitment to government departments. So far four lakh persons have been recruited in a transparent and impartial manner.
During the previous Samajwadi Party regime, serious charges of irregularities were levelled against the commission and its chairman. The candidates appearing for competitive examinations for various posts had also launched agitation against the commission.
During the last four years after Yogi Adityanath took over as chief minister in March 2017, there has been an image makeover in UP Public Service Commission. During the previous Samajwadi Party regime, charges of corruption and irregularities in recruitment were order of the day. During the SP regime competitive examinations held between April 2017 and March 2017 were mired in controversy.  The Central investigating agency CBI had also conducted probes into the recruitment made by the UPPSC during the Samajwadi Party regime.
Prior to his appointment in UPPSC, Sanjay Srinet was special director, northern region Enforcement directorate. During his tenure he led the operation for the seizure of assets worth over Rs 4,000 crore and detected cases of tax evasion and smuggling of over Rs 100 crore.
