Shah Faesal (IAS:2010:AGMUT) has been selected for appointment as Deputy Secretary in the Ministry of Culture, Delhi for a period of four years. According to an order issued by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) on Tuesday (30.08.2022), Mr Faesal, who was recommended for central deputation by the Ministry of Home Affairs, has been appointed to the post for a period of four years under Central Staffing Scheme from the date of taking over charge of the post or until further orders, whichever is earlier.
