Smriti Irani to oversee HRD ministry's answers

Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani will personally oversee answers to questions from Parliament to her ministry.

Also, replies sent to Parliament in the name of her two junior ministers Upendra Kushwaha and Ram Shankar Katheria will now be sent in Irani’s name. The two ministers of state(MoSs) will however be shown replies concerning the departments under their responsibilities before they are dispatched to Parliament with Irani’s approval.

The HRD minister allocated work to Kushwaha and Katheria in November soon after they joined the ministry. 

According to an office order issued on November 18, Katheria was put in charge of the department of higher education’s schemes meant for students belonging to the minority community and north eastern region as well as schemes meant for students belonging to scheduled castes, scheduled tribes and other backward classes.
