In a surprise move, Arun Goel (IAS:1985:PB), Secretary, Ministry of Heavy Industries, takes VRS six weeks before his retirement on 31.12.2022. After Goel’s VRS request was accepted Friday evening, the central government notified Kamran Rizwi (IAS:1991:UP) as Goel’s replacement, effective 19.11.2022. The Centre had appointed Rizwi as OSD in the Ministry of Heavy Industries on 19.10.2022 until Goel’s retirement (31.12.2022). The reasons behind Goel’s VRS are not known yet, but speculation about his next move has ensued.
