New Delhi: A day after the Ministry of Civil Aviation wrote a strong letter to the Public Enterprises Selection Board to change qualification requirement (QR) for the post of Chairman & Managing Director for govt. owned helicopter company, Pawan Hans Helicopters Ltd., the board decided to postpone the interviews scheduled today for the selection of a new CMD and published on its website fresh qualification for the job. New date for receiving application is now fixed for October 4, 2012.

It seem the selection of new CMD for PHHl is jinxed as this is third time that the process to select a CMD has run into troubled waters. Earlier in July and then in August this year, applications were invited and re-invited.

According to source, unhappy with the process of selection, the ministry did not release the Annual Confidential Reports (ACR) of eight candidates which is mandatory for considering their candidature. Of these eight, three candidates are from the PHHL and five from the Airport Authority of India which are under the ministry.

Sources told that after the vacancy was announced by the Board, PHHL did not publish advertisement inviting applications for the post but it was not done. The present CMD Anil Srivastava, citing the QR issue for not publishing the advertisement, sent a letter to the ministry. There after, yesterday evening, the ministry in a letter to the PESB asked to change the QR before proceeding further. 

Fifteen bureaucrats have applied for the post including three from PHHL, five from Airport Authority of India, one IAS officer from Kerala, three from the Railways, one each from Scooters India Ltd. Containers Corporation and Central Warehousing Corporation. 

If all goes well , PESB will now select the candidate by October end. It may further take 3 to 4 months for the selected candidate to assume his charge as CMD PHHL. Till then, the present CMD Srivastava will continue to be the CMD of the company.

He has a special distinction of wearing three hats together. He is a joint secretary in the civil aviation ministry, he is CVO of DGCA and he is also the CMD of PHHL.
