New Delhi, August 5

The government today issued an order to give a one-year extension in service to Cabinet Secretary Rajiv Gauba. This is his second extension on the post.

Gauba, former Union Home Secretary, was in 2019 appointed to the country's top bureaucratic post for two years. He was given a one-year extension in August last year.

The Department of Personnel in the order said, “The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet has approved extension in service to Gauba, a 1982-batch IAS officer of Jharkhand cadre, as Cabinet Secretary for a further period of one-year beyond August 30, 2022.”

It is to be noted here that Gauba is credited as the key architect of the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, 2019, which divided the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir into two Union territories following the abrogation of the special status given to it under Article 370 of the Constitution.

He had also served as secretary in the Union Urban Development Ministry, Additional Secretary in the Home Ministry, looking after the crucial left wing extremism division, among other responsibilities.

Born in Punjab, Gauba had graduated in Physics from Patna University. He had served in Jharkhand as the Chief Secretary for 15 months before returning to the National Capital in 2016 on central deputation. He also represented India on the board of the International Monetary Fund for four years also.
