Srinagar: Centre has posted 2010 batch IAS officer Shah Faesal as Deputy Secretary in the Union Ministry of Tourism.
Faesal, a 2010 batch IAS topper of erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir cadre, now AGMUT, resigned from the services in January 2019 and formed the political party Jammu and Kashmir People’s Movement (JKPM).
Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) reinstated Faesal in April this year.
Faesal, who had decided to form his own political party after resigning from service, became disgruntled with politics and later stepped out of it by giving up his position in the J&K People’s Movement.
He formed the J&K People’s Movement on February 4, 2019, but resigned from politics on August 10, 2020.
He stood first in the 2010 Civil Services exam and was allotted home cadre. He has served in different positions during his service period.
Faesal had become an icon for civil service aspirants who seemed to lose their motivation after his resignation from a brilliant career.
