Senior IAS officer Alok Kumar on Monday took over as the new chief secretary of Tripura.
The 1990 batch civil servant replaces Manoj Kumar, who has been transferred and posted as Special Chief Resident Commissioner of Tripura Bhavan, New Delhi.
Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb congratulated the newly-appointed chief secretary.
“Shri Kumar Alok ji takes charge as the Chief Secretary today. He will wholeheartedly work with the team to make Tripura a model state and fulfil the dream of Honble PM Shri Narendra Modi ji. I congratulate him on assuming charge.
“All the best,” CM Deb said in a tweet on Monday.
Kumar was earlier posted as an additional secretary in the Cabinet Secretariat at New Delhi.
Kumar has become the fifth chief secretary in the 38-month- old BJP-led government in Tripura.
