Last month, the Central government appointed senior Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer Atal Dulloo as the new Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir with effect from December 1 this year.

Dulloo, a 1988-batch Arunachal Pradesh-Goa-Mizoram and Union Territory (AGMUT) cadre IAS officer, will take charge after the superannuation of incumbent Chief Secretary Arun Kumar Mehta at the end of this month after the completion of 60 years of age. Mehta, also a 1988-batch AGMUT cadre officer, is retiring on November 30.

Dulloo was currently posted as secretary, of the Department of Border Management under the Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA).

MHA announced in an order pointing “consequent upon the superannuation of Arun Kumar Mehta, IAS (AGMUT: 1988) on November 30, 2023, and on repatnation from Central Deputation, Atal Dulloo, IAS (AGMUT: 1988) hereby appointed as Chief Secretary, Jammu and Kashmir with effect from December 1, 2023, or from date of assumption of charge, whichever is later and until further orders.”

Dulloo has served in various capacities in Jammu and Kashmir, including additional chief secretary and financial commissioner before he was shifted out from the erstwhile state. He is currently the senior-most officer serving in Jammu and Kashmir after Mehta.

Earlier this year, Dulloo was posted on Central deputation as secretary, Department of Border Management to his parent cadre at the request of the MHA. (ANI)
