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?

  • This one would be decided by UPSC.It can swing either way

  • 100% sure appointed by governor..
  • edited August 2016
    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
  • anyone can edit wikipedia !

    maine edit karke Attorney general likha hai :D

  • 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"

  • Lekin ho skta h upsc chief min mane, last time they interpreted supreme court as guarnter n protector of consti and not pres.

  • 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!
  • this same question was in IES 2006 paper
    their it was "D" marked correct by upsc
    u can check from examrobot site

  • 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

    Yea even I marked B based on this judgment(TSR Subramaniam vs Union of India). It was asked in Pub ad Mains 2014, Prelims 2015(Civil Service Board Question). I think this is the reason UPSC repeated the same question from IES 2006 . But we seem to be a microscopic minority

    imagine every next day as if exam day

    if you have cleared pre....clear mains too...otherwise there is no point in clearing pre only.

    pre is just qualifying.

    Last year " Custodian of The Constitution " wala question tha, jo bina vajah bahut Disputable bana diya gaya tha.. Tarah tarah ki links, Documents, articles, and what not,.. Har cheez share ki gayi thi yahaan par, in the favour of President....

    And official answer key mein kya answer tha, that we all know very well...

    Usi prakaar se, is baar ye " Chief Secretary " waala question hai...

    Anyway.. Whatever be the answer of this question.. Pls DO NOT hamper your Mains exam preparation.... Prelims is just a Qualifying exam.. It's marks doesn't and will not give one, a Top class government service.

    Samaya kam hai... Aur padhna bahut bahut bahut hi zyada hai.

    I couldn't clear the CSM 2015... And 19th February 2016 ke baad, mujh par kis kadar Dukho ka Pahaad tuut padaa tha, aur maine kya kya Taqleefein nahi jheli thi uske baad, ye main bahut acchi tarah se jaanta hoon.

    Isliye haath jodd kar Praarthna karta hoon main sabse ki PLS PLS PLS, go and study for the CSM 2016.

    God bless all.

    my friend..these were directives by court to the executive...and if you read carefully into the judgement 'It suggested Fixed tenure' ..Not mandated it..what was mandated was CSB..and that too within 3 months..but still it is an eleusive institution...if they mandated it would have been judicial overreach in executive domain....FOr your reference i am citing a Hindu article http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/in-major-reform-sc-orders-fixed-tenure-for-bureaucrats/article5299939.ece
