Thursday, 20 June 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has given additional charge of New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) chairperson to Delhi Chief Secretary Naresh Kumar for two months.

Kumar is a 1987-batch AGMUT IAS officer and has previously also served as the NDMC chairman.

"I am directed to say that with the approval of the Competent Authority, it is decided to assign the charge of Chairperson, New Delhi Municipal Council to... Naresh Kumar, IAS (AGMUT: 1987), Chief Secretary of Govt. Of NCT of Delhi, in addition to his existing charges, with immediate effect for a term not exceeding 02 months from the date of assumption of charge or until further orders, whichever is earlier," read the communication from the MHA to the principal secretary to the Lt Governor.

Last month, the Centre had extended the service of Kumar for a further period of three months.

Kumar, at loggerheads with the AAP government in Delhi, was given his first extension in November 2023, following a Supreme Court order.

Kumar, who was due to retire on November 30, 2023, was given a six months extension.
