In a recent development, the Central Government has decided to extend the tenure of Mr. Piyush Goyal, a 1994 batch IAS officer from the Nagaland cadre, as the CEO of NATGRID (National Intelligence Grid). The decision was made in accordance with an order issued by the Department of Personnel and Training (DOPT) on September 27, 2023.
The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC) has granted approval for this extension, allowing Mr. Goyal to continue his deputation beyond the original end date of March 25, 2024. His extended tenure will now be valid up to November 19, 2025, or until further orders are issued, whichever occurs earlier.
This decision underscores the government’s confidence in Mr. Goyal’s leadership and expertise in overseeing NATGRID’s critical functions.
