The roles of home secretary and finance secretary are crucial bureaucratic positions in Chandigarh after the advisor to the administrator. Both officers handle key responsibilities related to home affairs, police, transport, finance, urban planning, excise, estate, etc.
Municipal Corporation Commissioner Anindita Mitra (IAS:2007:PB), a Punjab Cadre IAS officer, is anticipated to conclude her three-year deputation in August. Chandigarh Deputy Commissioner Vinay Pratap Singh (IAS:2011:HY), a Haryana cadre IAS officer, will complete his deputation tenure in November this year.
Furthermore, Director General of Police (DGP) Praveer Ranjan (IPS:1993:AGMUT), an AGMUT cadre IPS officer, is also reaching the end of his three-year term in Chandigarh in August.
