The government has extended the term of Bharti S Sihag as the chairman and managing director (CMD) of National Mineral Development Corporation (NMDC), India’s largest iron ore miner, for three months till September. 

 
Sihag, a senior bureaucrat, has the additional charge of the state-run enterprises. She is an additional secretary and financial adviser in the ministry of steel, which governs the Navratna company. 
 
She was given the additional charge of NMDC in January this year after its then chairman Narendra Kothari retired in December 2015.
 
This is the second time her term has been extended. In April, the government had extended her tenure by three months effective from April 1, 2016.
 
The government's head hunter Public Enterprises Selection Board (PESB) has so far not been able to find a full-time successor to Kothari.
 
PESB, earlier, had recommended Gopal Singh for the top post, but the appointments committee of the cabinet has still not given its nod on the same. Singh is heading Central Coalfields Ltd (CCL) since March 2012.
