The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has appointed Anshu Prakash as its new additional secretary. Anshu Prakash, a 1986 batch Arunachal Pradesh-Goa-Mizoram and Union Territories (AGMUT) cadre officer, was currently serving as the chief secretary of Delhi.

Further, the government has shifted N Sivasailam, who was serving as special secretary in the DoT to the Department of Commerce.

According to a notification by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC) has approved the appointment of N Sivasailam as special secretary (Logistics), Department of Commerce.
