The central government on Thursday (20.10.2022) appointed Narayana Rao Battu, Additional Secretary, Legislative Department, Ministry of Law & Justice, as Whole-Time Member (Law), Pension Fund Regulation and Development Authority (PFRDA). According to an order issued by the Department of Financial Services, he has been appointed to the post with effect from the date of assumption of charge of the post till he attains the age of 62 years, or until further order, whichever is earlier.

While the post of Member (law) has now been filled, the Centre is yet to appoint Member (Economics) — the only other vacancy in the Board. Deepak Mohanty, who was the erstwhile Member (Economics), had demitted office in end-May.
