RS Sharma likely to take charge as TRAI chairman

NEW DELHI: The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) will have another bureaucrat as its chairman. Ram Sewak Sharma, currently serving as secretary in the department of electronics and information technology, is set to replace Rahul Khullar.

Once the official notification is out, Sharma would formally take charge as the new chairman for a period of three years, The Financial Express reported.

Khullar, who had taken charge of the TRAI on 14 May 2012, retired last week.

A 1978-batch IAS officer of Jharkhand cadre, Sharma had worked in the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). An IITian from Kanpur, he is not new to telecom issues as he is a member of the Telecom Commission.
