HP: RD Dhiman set to be new Chief Information Commissioner


Himachal Pradesh Chief Secretary RD Dhiman (IAS:1988:HP) is set to become the state’s new Chief Information Commissioner. In this regard, a high-level screening committee chaired by Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu in Shimla made a decision on Tuesday. In July, Dhiman was appointed Chief Secretary, and he will retire on December 31.

The appointment of Dhiman to the position of chief information commissioner will last for three years. Since Narendra Chauhan’s term expired in June, the post of Chief Information Commissioner has been vacant in the state.

The previous government had invited applications for the same in May to which RD Dhiman, Dr Savita, RN Batta, SR Mardi, JC Sharma and 48 other officers and advocates associated with judicial services had responded.

However, the decision could not be made in the meeting held in June for the appointment.
