Adhia, a 1981 batch Gujarat-cadre Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer, may not get an extension, nor has he expressed the willingness to seek one, the report said quoting sources. As 2019 is the election year, the Budget presented by finance minister Arun Jaitley will be that of an interim one.
It is an accepted practice in the finance ministry to extend the tenure of the acting secretaries if their retirement date falls close to the Budget presentation, the report said, adding that former economic affairs secretary Shaktikanta Das’ tenure was extended to May from February to oversee the post budget process which includes the passage of the Finance Bill.
