Former Chief Minister Mrs. Rajinder Kaur Bhattal has been appointed as Vice Chairperson of Punjab State Planning Board in the rank and status of Cabinet Minister.

The notification was issued by the Finance Department on the directives of Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, after following due procedure and taking into consideration her eligibility for the post.

As per the notification, Bhattal’s appointment would be effective from the date she assumes the charge of her assignment. The detailed terms and conditions of her appointment would be determined in due course, it said.

The erstwhile SAD-BJP government had two posts of Vice Chairperson in the State Planning Board, of which one was earlier held by eminent industrialist Rajinder Gupta and another by former Punjab BJP Chief Prof. Rajinder Bhandari. Consequent upon Bhandari’s resignation, one of the two posts of Vice Chairperson, Punjab Planning Board, had fallen vacant, which has now been filled with the appointment of Bhattal.
