The government today appointed senior bureaucrat B S Bhullar as chief of aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

A 1986-batch IAS officer of UP cadre, Bhullar is presently posted as Additional Secretary in Civil Aviation ministry.

Bhullar's appointment was cleared by the appointments committee of the Cabinet which is headed by Prime Minister Modi.

The post has been lying vacant for the past over four months after M Sathiyavathy, the first woman chief of the aviation regulator, was named as new Union Labour Secretary in July this year.

Sathiyavathi, a 1982-batch IAS officer of the union territories cadre, was in September last year appointed as the Director General of Civil Aviation.

The Appointments Committee of Cabinet has approved Bhullar's appointment to the post "by keeping the regular recruitments for the post in abeyance", an order issued by Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said.

The DGCA endeavours to promote safe and efficient air transportation through regulation and proactive safety oversight system.
