In a recent major bureaucratic movement, top Maharashtra bureaucrat Sitaram Kunte retired from the post of the state’s Chief Secretary on November 30. The state government earlier hosted a meeting with a proposal to extend Kunte’s tenure for a period of six months which was unsuccessful in receiving the central government’s approval.

However, taking into consideration the rich administrative experience of the 1985-Batch senior bureaucrat of IAS cadre, the Maharashtra government appointed Kunte as Principal Advisor to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.

Meanwhile, the state government assigned the charge of the Chief Secretary post to Debashish Chakrabarty, a 1986 batch IAS officer in additional capacity besides he being the Additional Chief Secretary, Planning Department.

Sitaram Kunte assumed the charge of Chief Secretary of Maharashtra on February 28 this year after the incumbent CS Sanjay Kumar’s retirement from the post.
