APPSC gets new chairman, three members

ITANAGAR, 7 Feb: Governor BD Mishra has appointed Shantanu Dayal as the chairman of the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission [APPSC], and Koj Tari, Prof Pradip Lingfa and Rosy Taba as its members.

Tari is a retired colonel, while Prof Lingfa is from the NERIST. Taba is a former member of the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights and the Arunachal Pradesh State Commission for Women.

The posts of the chairman and the three members had fallen vacant following the resignation of the former officials from their respective posts in October 2022 after the leakage of the question paper for the APPSC’s AE exam came to light in August.

The commission consists of a chairman and four members.
