Jammu and Kashmir Governor NN Vohra is likely to resign from his post, Indian Express reported.
Quoting sources, the national daily said that the development could take place as early as this week, even today.
Vohra who took over from S K Sinha on June 25, 2008, was the first civilian governor of the state in 18 years after Jagmohan.
However, the Home Ministry denied reports saying they received no such letter from the Governor’s office.
The reports said that the Centre has been scouting for a replacement for several months.
Vohra had earlier served as Union Home Secretary as well as Defence Secretary. He also served as Principal Secretary to Prime Minister IK Gujral between 1997-98. Vohra, 81, is also a recipient of the Padma Vibushan.
