RAIPUR: BVR Subrahmanyam, a 1987-batch IAS officer of Chhattisgarh cadre has been transferred on deputation to Jammu & Kashmir, where he is likely to take charge as the chief secretary.

The Appointment Committee of the Cabinet has approved the name of Subrahmanyam, who is presently posted as additional chief secretary (Home) in Chhattisgarh, placing his services at the disposal of the government of J & K.

Highly placed sources in the state secretariat told the New Indian Express that he will soon take over the responsibility as the next chief secretary in J&K. Earlier in his career, Subrahmanyam worked as PS to the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh during UPA-I and had spent nearly a decade in the PMO.

He also worked in the World Bank in Washington DC on deputation for almost three years. He again served in the PMO till March 2015 before returning to Chhattisgarh.

The Governor's rule has been imposed in J & K a day after the coalition partner BJP snapped ties with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) followed by the resignation of chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday.
