 The ministry of personnel on Friday dashed off a ‘wireless message’ to chief secretaries of all states and union territories seeking applications from suitable candidates for the post of chairperson of Public Enterprises Selection Board (PESB).

Current chairman Ajit Kumar Seth is set to retire in November. Suitable candidates can apply for the job till October 3, according to a news report published in The Hindu.  
 
The move of the ministry came amid growing criticism of the Modi government on its indifference in filling up large number of vacancies in public sector undertakings. The PESB is a high-powered body constituted by the centre with the objective of evolving a sound managerial policy for the central public sector enterprises and to advise the government on appointments to top management posts.
 
The PSEB makes recommendations to concerned ministries, who in turn, after the due process, forward them to the appointments committee of the cabinet headed by the prime minister.
 
As per the government resolution, the chairperson of PESB shall be a distinguished serving or former chief executive of a public or private or joint sector enterprise, a distinguished person with experience in selection of top management personnel or a distinguished serving or former civil servant with experience in management of public sector enterprises or in areas of finance, industry and economic affairs.
