National Capital Civil Services Authority meeting deferred

Friday, 08 December 2023 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

A meeting of the National Capital Civil Services Authority (NCCSA) scheduled for Friday has been deferred indefinitely, amid a growing tussle between the AAP dispensation and the city government bureaucracy.

 The three-member panel is headed by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and includes the chief secretary and the principal secretary (home), who acts as secretary of the body.

 “The meeting of the NCCSA was scheduled for December 8 but has been postponed without any specific reason and the fresh date has also not been communicated,” an official said on condition of anonymity.

 Last month, Kejriwal had made a recommendation to the NCCSA for the suspension of senior IAS officer and Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) chairman Ashwani Kumar for allegedly stopping a study to ascertain pollution sources in Delhi and shutting down an anti-smog tower.

 “It is a little strange that Ashwani Kumar, who is also principal secretary (home) and also the secretary of the NCCSA, will be a part of the meeting to decide on action against him,” the official said.
