Govt may bifurcate Tea Board chairman’s post: Rita Teaotia

A government proposal says the Tea Board should have a non-executive chairman responsible for policy road maps, and a CEO for implementing policy decisions

Kolkata: Union commerce secretary Rita Teaotia on Friday said that the government is considering a proposal to ‘bifurcate’ the post of chairman of the Tea Board of India, a quasi regulatory body.

According to the proposal, the Tea Board should have a non-executive chairman responsible for preparing policy road maps and a chief executive officer responsible for implementation of policy decisions, she said, addressing the media.

The Tea Board has traditionally had a career bureaucrat as its chairman. Current chairman, Santosh Sarangi, is an Odisha cadre Indian Administrative Service officer.
