SSB chief Deswal appointed ITBP DG
The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet issued the order giving Deswal, a 1984-batch Haryana cadre Indian Police Service (IPS) officer, the responsibility till his superannuation on August 31, 2021 or until further orders, said a Ministry of Personnel order.
Deswal's appointment comes after incumbent ITBP chief R.K. Pachnanda, a 1983-batch West Bengal cadre IPS officer, retired on Wednesday.
Deswal took over as head of SSB only last month after moving from the Border Security Force where he was a Special Director General.
