Database accessible through DPE website


Samir Sachdeva | April 12, 2010

The Department of Public Enterprises (DPE) has taken the initiative to build and maintain a database of incumbents of Boards of Directors of central public sector enterprises (CPSEs).  

The database which was launched on March 9 is accessible through the department’s website .

In its results framework document for the year 2009-10, DPE had committed to launch an online portal for database of directors of CPSEs by March, 15.

The system has been developed by DPE-NIC and has latest information regarding all three categories of directors, viz. functional, official and non-official, on the boards of CPSEs.

In order to keep the database updated and current, all CPSEs have been advised to nominate a nodal officer in order to inform DPE about change in incumbency position of board of directors of respective CPSEs. To date, 145 CPSEs have nominated nodal officers who are regularly keeping DPE informed of any change in the incumbency of their respective boards.

This database would help in maintaining and disseminating proper information regarding incumbency of directors of CPSEs. It will also help administrative ministries better plan for early filling of existing and future vacancies on the boards of CPSEs.
