Kejri reign officials go through reshuffle

His Principal Secy gets new assignment

Former Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar has been given a new assignment in the Urban Development Department in a shuffle effected in Delhi bureaucracy on Tuesday.

A new public grievance monitoring system has been put in place at the Delhi Secretariat for accepting complaints during Public Hearing Session, by post and at a desk at the Delhi Secretariat, said a Raj Niwas statement.

A 1989 batch IAS officer, Rajendra Kumar, an IIT, Delhi, alumnus like Kejriwal, was Higher Education Secretary and had earlier handled various departments, including Power and Transport.

Apart from Rajendra Kumar’s transfer, Food and Supplies Principal Secretary Arun Goel was shifted to the Power Department and Power Secretary Puneet Goel was relieved from the Delhi government.


Secretary Industries Amit Yadav was shifted to the Labour Department and Secretary Urban Development Supplies S S Yadav has been sent to Food and Supplies, among other transfers.

Meanwhile, Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung reviewed the new public grievance system at the secretariat and instructed that problems faced by the people must be addressed swiftly.

“The system is working on paperless mode through portal. Brief details of the grievances are entered in the system, scanned and then forwarded to the concerned departments,” said the statement.

Approximately, 200 departments of the Delhi government have been connected through the portal and are required to upload their response to the grievances within the stipulated time.

“Jung has instructed that there must be a speedy redressal of problems through this new facility and he will review of the working of this system periodically,” the statement said.
