Bhubaneswar: After a lapse of two years the State government on Wednesday appointed Sunil Mishra as the new Chief Information Commissioner (CIC) of Odisha. The Governor of Odisha S C Jamir today issued a formal notification in this regard.
Earlier in the month Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had presided over a meeting of the selection committee attended by other members including the Parliamentary Affairs Minister Bikram Arukha and Leader of Opposition Narasingh Mishra. Sunil Mishra’s name evolved as a consensus though the names of additional chief secretary in Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) UN Behera and retired chief secretary of Odisha SK Panda had come under active consideration.
Sunil Mishra is a retired IRS officer.
