Panchkula, November 24

Mahavir Kaushik, a 2011-batch IAS officer, today assumed charge as the Panchkula Deputy Commissioner. He was previously serving as the DC, Fatehabad.

After assuming charge, Kaushik said his priorities included successful implementation of government schemes and those introduced by the Chief Minister like ‘Mukhyamantri Antyodaya Parivar Utthan Yojana’, public services provided through the CM Window and e-office.

Kaushik has served as the Administrator, Haryana Shahri Vikas Pradhikaran, for two years. His previous association with the city would help him understand the needs of local residents, he said.

As the city was witnessing a rise in Covid cases, the new DC urged people to not miss their second dose. “The Covid is still not over. Along with vaccination, people need to follow Covid-appropriate behaviour to stop the spread of the virus,” he said.

Kaushik has replaced Vinay Pratap Singh, who was recently appointed as the Deputy Commissioner of Chandigarh.
