The Government of Telangana today appointed Irrigation & CAD Special Chief Secretary Dr Shailendra Kumar Joshi as the new Chief Secretary of the state.

The incumbent S P Singh retired today on attaining the age of superannuation.

Joshi will take charge of his new post on Thursday.

The decision to appoint Joshi as the new CS was taken by Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao.

It may be reiterated here that the CM had previously requested the Centre to give a three-month extension to Singh. However, with no response from the Centre forthcoming, the CM took the decision to appoint Joshi as the new Chief Secretary.

On why Joshi had been picked for the post, it was learnt that the Chief Minister was happy with his performance as Special Chief Secretary of the irrigation department, particularly for completing the projects entrusted to the department, including Kaleshwaram, on a war-footing.

Joshi said that he was grateful to the Chief Minister for elevating him to the rank of Chief Secretary. He said that he would dedicate himself to serving the people to the best of his capabilities.

Born on December 20, 1959, in Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh, Joshi did his B Tech from IIT Roorkee and M Tech from IIT Delhi prior to joining the IAS in 1984. He started his career as an Assistant Collector in Nellore, and later worked as a Sub-Collector in Tenali and Vikarabad, and a Joint Collector and Collector in Krishna district. He had earlier served in the Indian Railways.

When enquired about his most professionally satisfying moment, Joshi said that it was on seeing waters flowing in the various water supply projects he'd been part of, especially in the erstwhile Mahabubnagar district.

He added that his dream was to complete the Kaleshwaram project in time.
