Former Planning Commission Secretary Sindhushree Khullar was today appointed as Chief Executive Officer of the newly formed NITI Aayog.

Khullar, a retired IAS officer, has been appointed on contract basis for a period of one year from January 1, 2015, an order issued by the Department of Personnel and Training said.

Khullar, a 1975 batch UT cadre IAS officer, had taken over as Secretary Planning Commission in April 2012.
