Vacant Posts of Chief Executives in Central Public Sector Enterprises

As per available information, at present posts of Chief Executives are vacant in 32 Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs). 

Giving this information in written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha, Shri Praful Patel, Minister of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises, said that the main reasons for vacant posts of Chief Executives in CPSEs include: 

(i) occurrence of unforeseen vacancies which arise due to resignation/death/vertical shift of incumbent executives, non-confirmation/non-extension of tenure of incumbent and scrapping of panel recommended by the Public Enterprises Selection Board (PESB)/search committee ; 

(ii) time taken in obtaining vigilance clearance or approval of competent authority; 

(iii) court cases; 

(iv) creation of new Board level posts and 

(v) decision of the concerned administrative Ministry to keep a particular post in abeyance, etc. 

Shri Patel said that the filling up of Board level posts in CPSEs is a continuous process and these vacant posts would get filled on regular basis once the incumbent takes charge of the post after completion of all formalities in this regard. 

Of the existing vacant 32 posts, the recommendations of PESB/Search Committee are already available for 15 posts which are awaiting vigilance clearance or approval of competent authority. 

In the case of 7 posts, selection process has been initiated by the PESB, 6 posts have been kept in abeyance as per the request of concerned administrative Ministry and in respect of remaining 4 posts, PESB has already recommended that the post may be filled on deputation basis. 

The Minister informed the House that the vacant posts of Chief Executives are being manned by assigning additional charge arrangements so that regular functioning of these CPSEs is not affected. 

The Government has taken several steps to fill the vacant Board level posts in CPSEs and the administrative Ministries/Departments have been issued instructions to ensure filling up the vacancies in CPSEs in time, and these are being monitored by holding regular meetings.
