In a significant move to bolster the leadership of the Haryana Real Estate Regulatory Authority (H-RERA), the Haryana government has appointed former DGCA chief and seasoned retired IAS officer Arun Kumar as the Chairman of the Gurugram bench. Additionally, retired IRS officer Parneet Singh Sachdev has been named as the chief of H-RERA’s Panchkula bench, reinforcing the regulatory authority’s key positions.
Key Appointments: Arun Kumar, a retired IAS officer of the 1989 batch from the Haryana cadre, brings a wealth of experience to his new role. Having previously served as the director general of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and the chief commissioner of the Chandigarh Right to Service Commission, Kumar’s diverse background positions him well for the responsibilities of leading H-RERA’s Gurugram bench.
The post of H-RERA (Gurugram) had been vacant since the retirement of its first chairman, KK Khandelwal, in February of this year. The addition of Arun Kumar is expected to bring renewed vigor to the regulatory authority.
The tenure for the Chairperson of Haryana RERA (Gurugram and Panchkula) is stipulated to be five years or until the age of 65, whichever comes earlier, according to the government order issued by additional chief secretary Arun Gupta.
Parneet Singh Sachdev, a retired IRS officer and former principal chief commissioner (income tax), assumes the crucial role of chief at H-RERA’s Panchkula bench.
Significance of the Appointments: These appointments underscore the Haryana government’s commitment to ensuring strong and experienced leadership in real estate regulatory bodies. Arun Kumar and Parneet Singh Sachdev’s extensive backgrounds in administrative and regulatory roles make them apt choices to steer H-RERA through its critical functions.
