The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) is scouting for a full-time CBSE chairman as the post has been lying vacant since December last year.
This year has already been quite eventful for CBSE as the second interim chairman, YSK Seshu Kumar, took charge a couple of months ago. The first, Satbir Bedi, took over the reigns after Vineet Joshi completed his full tenure at the helm. Joshiís shoes were anyway too big to fill as he oversaw implementation of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) scheme along with the revolutionary open book exam concept. If rumour mills were to believed, Bedi, a senior MHRD official, was all set to take full time charge before her candidature was questioned by the Appointment Committee. Seshu Kumar is percieved to be a stop gap arrangement and as of now there is no clarity on top candidates for the job. As per the vacancy ad, candidates applying for the post have to be officials of central/state government, semi-government and autonomous bodies. They have to be either holding anologous post on regular basis or have three years of regular service with a payscale of Rs 37,400-67,000 and grade pay of Rs 8,700. Also, they must have three years of experience in educational administration at a senior level. It is expected that candidates will be shortlisted by either this or next month.
