Debroy quits; PHDCCI goes head-hunting

November 16, 2006 15:46 IST

Punjab, Haryana and Delhi Chambers of Commerce and Industry Chamber of Commerce and Industry (India) has begun a head hunt for its new secretary general and deputy secretary general, following resignations of well-known economist Bibek Debroy and Amirulla Khan.

"We are looking at all possible options to fill the secretary general's post," PHDCCI Vice President Sanjay Bhatia told PTI when asked whether an internal candidate would be considered for the post which will fall vacant in February next year.

While Debroy has served notice for resignation, Khan has already been relieved. Debroy refused to comment but said, "I have nothing more to say except that I have put in my papers."

According to sources, Debroy who served less than a year in the PHD chamber, has several offers, including one from the government.

Before joining the chamber, Debroy had served Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Contemporary Studies as its director. He left the institute following a controversy over his study on ranking of BJP-ruled Gujarat.
