Jammu: Advisor to governor, B B Vyas on Wednesday submitted his resignation and is expected to be considered for position in the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), officials said.
Vyas, a 1986 batch IAS officer from Jammu and Kashmir cadre, is likely to fly to the national capital soon for completing the formalities of filing his nomination so that the process of considering his name for the post can be initiated by the government.
The governor has accepted his resignation, they said.
The UPSC has eight members, including its chairperson Arvind Saxena. The commission can have upto 11 members.
The 61-year-old, originally a resident of Rajasthan, was slated to retire in November 2017 but the Personnel Ministry amended the service rules to provide extension of three months on the request of the then chief minister, Mehbooba Mufti.
He was given another three month extension and was subsequently given another one-year extension in May 2018.
