Deepak Kumar, Chairman, National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), is set to join as Bihar’s Chief Secretary. The Deepak Kumar, who was instrumental in awarding the longest-ever stretch of national highways last year, thinks meeting the ambitious construction target of 6,000 km a challenge. “That is because meeting the construction target will need doubling the construction rate,” he said.
Deepak Kumar, a Bihar cadre IAS, spent less than a year at the helm at NHAI. He will be moving as the top bureaucrat of Bihar, after being asked by both the State and Central government about his willingness to be posted as the Chief Secretary of the Bihar, according to a source close to deepak Kumar.
Yudhvir Singh Malik, Secretary, Road Transport Ministry, who was Chairman of NHAI, before Kumar took over, has been given additional charge of the government arm that oversees construction and maintenance of highways. Read More
