Bureaucrat Ranbir Singh has been appointed as the new Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) of Delhi, officials said Tuesday.
Singh, a 1991-batch IAS officer, succeeds Vijay Kumar Dev.
"Ranbir Singh, who earlier also served as the commissioner of the East Delhi Municipal Corporation, has been appointed the new CEO for Delhi," a senior official of the Delhi CEO office said.
Dev held the charge until recently when he was appointed as the chief secretary of the Delhi government.
The Ministry of Home Affairs had last Thursday issued the order appointing the 1987-batch IAS officer of the AGMUT (Arunachal Pradesh, Goa, Mizoram and Union Territory) cadre.
Dev will succeed Anshu Prakash following his transfer to the department of telecommunications in the central government.
