The public enterprises selection board (PESB), which is tasked to advise the government on appointments of top management posts in central public sector enterprises (CPSEs), has decided to re-advertise the post, according to news reports in Bureaucracy Today.

For India to achieve its policy objectives, the government a
In 2000, we set out on an uncharted journey. Neither did we have any strategy nor any idea about how far we could go. I still remember the day when we took the first meal to a government school. The children loved it. I did not believe that we would go with food the next day as well, but we did, and now we
Should Pahlaj Nihalani be axed as the chairperson of Central Board of Film Certification?
