Senior IAS officer Supriya Sahu on Thursday was been appointed as Doordarshan’s Director General, a post lying vacant for nearly two years.

A 1991 batch IAS officer, Sahu is currently working in her cadre state Tamil Nadu.

The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet approved the proposal for appointment of Sahu as Director General, Doordarshan, an order issued by department of Personnel and Training said.

The Indian Express today reported that Doordarshan’s Additional Director General legally challenged the proposed appointment of Sahu and demanded criminal action against the Prasar Bharati CEO for his role in the appointment process.

Additional DG Mahesh Joshi has filed a case in the Central Administrative Tribunal against Supriya Sahu’s name being recommended to the post of DG (Doordarshan). Joshi’s petition alleges that Prasar Bharati CEO Jawhar Sircar provided fraudulent information about Sahu.

In his petition, Joshi has alleged that Sahu was recommended for the post of DG (Doordarshan) even though she is not qualified. It is alleged that she had not completed three years of regular service as a Joint Secretary by October 31, 2014, as required under the recruitment rules.
