J S Deepak, who heads the prime minister’s committee on good governance, will be new telecom secretary. The IAS officer of 1982 Uttar Pradesh cadre was secretary of department of electronics and information technology, ministry of communications and Information technology. He replaces  Rakesh Garg as secretary of department of telecommunications. Garg, also from UP cadre, is new secretary of ministry of minority affairs.

Garg’s transfer comes after his statement last week that there won’t be any auction of spectrum in this financial year. Last week Garg had said "the auctions will be held sometime in June."  Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) is expected to come out with recommendations on floor price for available spectrum across bands by end of January, which will then be sent to the telecom department for approval. The government has pegged revenue from communication services for the current fiscal at Rs 42,865 crore, including upfront realisation from spectrum sale and licence fee.

Aruna Sharma from Madhya Pradesh cadre of IAS will take over from Deepak as IT secretary.

Shobhana K Pattanayak from Karnataka cadre is secretary, department of agriculture, cooperation and farmers welfare in ministry of agriculture.
