In a recent development, the Bihar government has appointed Amir Subhani (IAS:1987:BH) as the Chairman of the Bihar Electricity Regularity Commission (BERC). Subhani, who previously served as the Chief Secretary of Bihar, has been appointed for a term of five years or until the age of 65, whichever occurs earlier. This announcement comes two months ahead of his scheduled retirement date, which was set for April 30, 2024.

Amir Subhani steps into the role, succeeding Shishir Sinha (Retd IAS), who recently concluded his term as the Chairman of BERC. Subhani’s transition to this significant position follows his voluntary retirement (VRS) from the Chief Secretary post, making way for Brajesh Malhotra to assume the role of the new Chief Secretary of Bihar.

There were speculations and anticipation surrounding Subhani’s next assignment after his early retirement. The conjecture suggested that he might be appointed as the Chairperson of either the Bihar Public Service Commission (BPSC) or the Bihar Electricity Regulatory Commission (BERC). Both of these commissions had vacant chairperson positions for some time.

The vacancy in the BPSC chairman position arose after the retirement of former IAS officer Atul Prasad (IAS:1987:BH). Subsequently, former IAS officer Shishir Sinha (IAS:1982:BH) completed his term as the Chairman of BERC, creating an opportune moment for Subhani’s new appointment.
