Modi has asked him to continue for two weeks, principal government spokesperson Sitanshu Kar said. Former cabinet secretary PK Sinha has been appointed as officer on special duty by the prime minister, he said.
"It has been a privilege to serve the country under PM Modi. I am deeply grateful to him for this opportunity. It is now time for me to move on even as I remain devoted to public causes and national interest," Misra said after  expressing his intention to step down.
