Newdelhi:1/5/17:Anant Narayan Nanda resident of Balasore of Odisha state  and  1982 batch Indian Postal Service (IPoS) officer, has been appointed as secretary in the department of posts. He will replace Boyapati Venkat Sudhakar, an IPoS officer of 1981 batch. Originally belonging to Balasore district of Odisha, Nanda is  currently a member (banking and HRD) in Postal Services Board. His colleague and member (planning) of the same Postal Services Board — Ms Meera Handa was also considered a strong…

contender for the coveted post and she was also interviewed. But Nanda was finally selected for this secretary-ranked post. Significantly, no IAS officer can head the postal department just like the Indian Railways where only railway services officers become members and the chairman of the Railway Board, the highest decision-making body in the Indian Railways.
