NEW DELHI: Union Rural Development Secretary L C Goyal is tipped to be the next Union Home Secretary, following resignation of incumbent Anil Goswami.          

The order of appointment of Goyal, a 1979-batch IAS officer of Kerala cadre, is being issued by the government, official sources said tonight.         

Goyal had earlier served in the Home Ministry as Joint Secretary (Internal Security) a few years ago, the sources said.           

Goswami resigned as Home Secretary after the government asked him to put in his papers in the wake of controversy over his alleged attempt to stall the arrest of Saradha scam accused Matang Sinh, a former Congress minister at the Centre.
