What is the final answer for chief Secretary question?

Is CS really appointed by governor? When I checked wiki on Sunday, it was cm. Yesterday they changed it to governor. Looks like vajiram and shriram are right. Any service guys or kids of bureaucrats here?

    Neither 1 nor 2,
    .....Never read this thing in Governor's power related to appointments. CM invites the brilliant mind to join the head post of state administrative machinery. CS hasnt a fixed tenure. recent news Kejriwal's CS , not LG's CS

  • Not sure how many are pub ad students here. In pub ad paper 2, there is a separate topic for paper 2. People used to do it from Fadia or Ramesh Arora. I checked from both the books. Nowhere it's mentioned that governor appoints chief secretary.

  • CS is not appointed by Governor , only in the name of Governor it is appointed by CM. Infact all executive functions of state is undertaken in the name of Governor.
    Appointment by Governor means where Governor personally sign the appointment letter such as State Public Service Commission chairman and members, Lokayukta, Information Commissioners, State Election Commissioners etc.

  • It should be governor because although cm chooses the chief secretary but uske appointment letter par sign,to governor hi karega.

  • I feel "chosen" and "appointed" are two different words. For eg. CAG is chosen by the CoM headed by PM but appointed by the Prez. It's a very dicey one with UPSC being the sole arbiter.

    appointing auth is gov. cm decides gov appoints.

    infact recently delhi hc said all appointments/transfers made by kejru w/o advice/concurrence of lg are illegal.

    in every state dop order you would find "rajyapal ki aagya se/ on order of gov"

  • I am not arguing for or against governor. But taking Delhi example is not appropriate as Delhi is not a full state and derives powers from NCT Act and Article 239AA. Also Delhi has a Lt. Governor and not Governor.

  • There was a case named salil sabhlok vs state of punjab and others in 2013,
    The verdict mentioned (page 31)
    the words " chief minister or state governments to appoint a suitable person as chief secretary and dgp".
    U can check!

  • I don't understand why most of people and even Coaching walas is missing a very important point.
    In November 2013 , SC gave a famous judgement to fix tenure minimum 2 years for all appoointments from DM to CS and even Secretary in central government.
    DGP also have a fixed tenure by prakash singh case ( some exceptions defined)
    In pursuant of that DOPT issued notice to all state government to obey SC directive before a act is entacted.

    Being a senior player i can still recall civil services board judgement.

    Please Note -- I am very much in comfortable cut off zone and expressing my point not due to emotion.

    In my opinion answer should be only 2 correct
