Director of Enforcement Directorate Sanjay Kumar Mishra

The Appointment Committee of the Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 17 November 2022 has approved the extension of the tenure of the Director of Enforcement Directorate Sanjay Kumar Mishra by one year

The order issued by the Union Ministry of Personnel on 17 November 2022 said that the 1984-batch Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officer has been given the extension till November 18, 2023.

Sanjay Kumar Mishra was appointed director of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for a period of two years by an order on November 19, 2018.

Later, by an order of November 13, 2020, the appointment letter was modified retrospectively by the Central government and his term of two years was replaced by three years.

Last year the government of India promulgated an ordinance under which the tenure of the directors of the ED and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) can be extended by up to three years after the mandated term of two years.

After this ordinance Sanjay Mishra was given a further one year extension in 2021.
