Gujarat government has decided to elevate State Information Commissioner Balwant Singh as the new Chief Information Commissioner (CIC), who will be heading the Right to Information (RTI) authority in Gujarat, state government sources said.
Singh replaces D Rajagopalan, a retired IAS officer, who has been functioning as the CIC since November 2011. A formal swearing-in ceremony of the new CIC will be held at Raj Bhavan at Gandhinagar on Friday, a senior state government official said here on Thursday.
Singh was appointed as an State Information Commissioner after he retired as the Additional Chief Secretary (Personnel) General Administration Department in December 2011.
