The Centre announced the appointment of Rahul Singh as the new chairperson of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). Singh, a 1996-batch Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer of the Bihar cadre, takes over the helm from Nidhi Chhibber, marking a new chapter in the leadership of one of the country’s most pivotal educational bodies.

Rahul Singh, who is presently serving as the Additional Secretary in the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), brings a wealth of experience to the CBSE. His appointment was officially sanctioned by the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC), as revealed in a recent order from the Personnel Ministry.

The outgoing chairperson, Nidhi Chhibber, is set to embark on a new journey as Advisor to the Niti Aayog, leaving behind a legacy of contributions to the CBSE. This reshuffle also sees the introduction of A P Das Joshi, a 1994-batch IAS officer of the Assam-Meghalaya cadre, as the new Additional Secretary in DoPT, stepping into the shoes left by Singh.

These strategic appointments are expected to bring fresh perspectives and drive significant policy and administrative reforms in their respective domains, reflecting the government’s commitment to strengthening its bureaucratic framework.
