With a new PMO taking shape, work distribution has been firmed upNew Delhi, Sep 16 (IANS) With a new PMO taking shape under Prime Minister Modi, given that Principal Secretary Nripendra Misra has demitted office, the allocation of duties and work distribution has been firmed up. Both the new Principal Secretary P.K. Mishra and NSA Ajit Doval continue to have Cabinet rank.

P.K. Mishra will be looking after policy issues and matters related to ministries of personnel, public grievances and pensions, law and justice, appointments committee of the Cabinet and other appointments, Cabinet Secretariat, listing of Cabinet items, anti corruption unit, PMO establishment and of course all important policy issues and matters. It is believed that the powerful ACC had been taken away from Nripendra Misra in the second innings of PM Modi and that could have been one of the reasons for his departure.
