What made the Appointment Committee of the Cabinet revisit its well-considered decision taken on November 30, 2017, to empanel 38 IRS officers for top postings and chuck out two names of Manas Shankar Ray (IRS IT:1985) and Sunil Kumar Ojha (IRS IT:1986) from the list remains a mystery. Since all names are forwarded to the ACC after due vetting from all concerned including vigilance, it is speculated that the ACC might have been provided with something critical to make it change its mind.
One may call it a matter of fate. When two senior IRS Income Tax officers were first empanelled to hold Chief Commissioner of Income Tax posts (Additional Secretary rank post, HAG+) in Govt of India, they didn’t know that within 30 days, the government may cancel their empanelment.
It may be noted that as many as 38 IRS IT officers belonging to the 1986 batch were empanelled as CCIT on November 30, 2017, which also comprised 06 names from the 1985 batch (extended panel).
The ACC cancelled the empanelment of the only two officers mentioned above.
In total, 38 IRS IT officers were accorded promotion to the HAG+ grade of Chief Commissioner of Income Tax on November 30, 2017. Names of the officers are as follows: Sunil Kumar Ojha (IRS IT:1986), Virendra Singh, P K Ambastha, P S Punai, Ashim Kumar, Himalini Kashyap, I Sasikala, A K Satapathy, Om Prakash mehra, V Mahalingam, Anil Mehta, Ajay pal Singh, M Triumala Kumar, Manoj Kumar Dubey, Narender Singh, Ranajnjay Singh, Harish Kumar Bharatendu Pratap Singh, pramod Nangia, J B Mahapatra, Anjali Tiwari, Nilimesh Barua, G V Gopala Rao, Anu J Singh, Shefali Shah, D V Reddy, Chita Ranjan Pati, Ravinder Singh Gill, Geetmala Mohananey, Manas Shankar Ray (IRS IT:1985), Nitya Nand Mishra, Pravin Verma, Raghubir Sharan Upadhaya, Satbir Singh, Amit Jain, anuja Sarangi, Hemant Kumar Sarangi, Kan Ram Meghwal.
