Tarun Bajaj

Tarun Bajaj was appointed Revenue Secretary in the most important Department of Revenue, shifting him from the Department of Economic Affairs.

He was born on 9th November 1962.

Bajaj was holding an additional charge of the revenue department for one month following the superannuation of Ajay Bhushan Pandey.

The government has appointed Karnataka cadre IAS officer of the 1988 batch, Ajay Seth, who worked as Managing Director of the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation in Karnataka.
Mr. Bajaj is an old hand in the Ministry of Finance, having worked as Joint Secretary before he was moved to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).

Seth served as the principal secretary to the primary and secondary education department in the Karnataka state government. Bajaj had taken charge of the department of economic affairs (DEA) in April last year, guiding policy through the lockdown and various stimulus measures as the government focused on recovery.
with the full-time Revenue Secretary in place, the government likely takes up appointments in the Central Board of Direct Taxes, the top Income Tax policy-making body, where important posts like Member (Investigation) and Member (Administration) are vacant, causing concern in the taxation bureaucracy.
