CCI member Gupta resigns amid coal scam probe

Competition Commission of India (CCI) member and former coal secretary H C Gupta, who is set to be questioned by the CBI in connection with coal-gate scam, has submitted his resignation to the government.

The resignation came soon after the Corporate Affairs Ministry gave a green signal to the CBI to question Gupta, with regard to the coal blocks allocation scam.

Gupta was the Coal Secretary between 2006 and 2009, the period which is under the scanner for the CBI for alleged irregularities in allocation of coal blocks.

Soon after his retirement as coal secretary, the government appointed him a member of fair trade regulator CCI. His tenure was to end to early next year.
