Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC) on 14 January 2015 approved appointment of Anupam Shrivastava as CMD (Chairman and Managing Director) of Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL). Currently, he is serving as Director - Consumer Mobility at the BSNL.
BSNL's Director Enterprises A N Rai is currently handling the additional charge of CMD.
His appointment was pending from long. The Public Enterprise Selection Board (PESB) had shortlisted Anupam Shrivastava for the post of CMD of BSNL in 2013.
His tenure as CMD was to begin from 1 May 2013 but the then Union Telecommunication Minister Kapil Sibal held back the recommendation and granted extension to R K Upadhyay till 30 June 2013.
Further, change in the government at the Centre delayed the decision to appoint the head of BSNL.
