Bimal Julka appointed Chief Information Commissioner

Information Commissioner Bimal Julka was appointed as the Chief Information Commissioner (CIC) on Friday (March 6), according to a Rashtrapati Bhavan communique.

President Ram Nath Kovind administered the oath of office to Julka as the CIC in the Central Information Commission at a ceremony held at the Rashtrapati Bhavan.

The transparency watchdog has been functioning without a chief after Sudhir Bhargava retired on January 11 and is at a reduced strength of six information commissioners, against the sanctioned strength of 11 (including the CIC).

There is a vacancy of five more information commissioners at the commission after Julka’s appointment as the CIC.
