100 apply, but who should be next CCI chairman?

Around 100 bureaucrats, economists and the six members of the Competition Commission of India (CCI) have applied to become CCI chairman, reported The Indian Express, as incumbent chairman Ashok Chawla is due to retire on 7 January 2016.

The Express reported that “urban development secretary Madhusudan Prasad; Bimal Julka, who retired as I&B secretary in August 2015; Subir Gokarn, former RBI Deputy Governor and Harsha Vardhana Singh, former deputy director general at WTO” are among the applicants, alongside current CCI members SL Bunker, UC Nahta, MS Sahoo, Sudhir Mital, Augustine Peter and GP Mittal.

The CCI post has seen twice the 50 applicants seen for the post of Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) chairman, where UK Sinha is set to step down on 17 February 2016.
