Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Principal Secretary, Nripendra Misra, has expressed his intention to be relieved of his duties, the government said. Modi has asked him to continue for two weeks, principal government spokesperson Sitanshu Kar said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the former bureaucrat taught him a lot when he was new in the national capital in 2014. The prime minister wished Misra for the “new phase” of his life.

He said after serving the PMO “assiduously and diligently” for over five years and making an indelible contribution to India's growth trajectory, Misra will be embarking on a new phase of his life.

Former cabinet secretary PK Sinha has been appointed as officer on special duty in the Prime Minister’s Office.
