West Bengal cadre IAS officer Sanjay Mitra to be next defence secretary

The government on Wednesday approved the appointment of West Bengal cadre and 1982 batch officer Sanjay Mitra as the next defence secretary of the country.
He will get a fixed tenure of two years as the defence secretary.
Mitra, who was holding the charge of secretary in the ministry of road transport and highways till now, has been appointed officer-on-special-duty in the defence ministry and will assume charge on May 24 when incumbent G Mohan Kumar retires.
The defence ministry brought out its new procurement policy during Kumar’s tenure but without a key chapter on the strategic partnership model to identify Indian firms that can forge alliances with foreign defence contractors to build high-tech defence systems in the country.
