Navreet Singh Kang, a 1983-batch Punjab-cadre IAS officer, has been appointed additional secretary in the Union health ministry. Kang is currently the financial commissioner, revenue, in the Punjab government. He would take up the new assignment in November.

In August last year, the state government had promoted Kang along with two other IAS officers on the pay scale of the chief secretary on completion of 30 years of service.

Earlier, Kang held the portfolio of financial commissioner, development; finance secretary, UT Chandigarh; secretary to the Punjab governor; and the deputy commissioner of Jalandhar and Patiala. He has also worked with the Union health ministry for five years as director and joint secretary.
