A move like this would pave the way for Chakrabarty’s extension at least three months after he retires. If the Centre does not approve Chakrabarty’s extension as it did in the case of his predecessor Sitaram Kunte (IAS:1985:MH), Chakrabarty will retire satisfied of managing the top administrative office.
