Newly appointed district magistrate (DM) of Gautam Budh Nagar Brajesh Narain Singh took charge on Thursday evening after Wednesday’s major reshuffle of Uttar Pradesh (UP) bureaucrats.

Singh, a 2009 batch Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer, was serving as additional resident commissioner in New Delhi prior to his posting as DM, Gautam Budh Nagar.

The reshuffle of bureaucrats was announced by the UP government on Wednesday night and as many as 84 IAS and 54 IPS officers were transferred.

Nagendra Prasad Singh, the former DM of GN Nagar, will now take over as the DM of Saharanpur district. It will be a challenging experience for NP Singh, considering the volatile situation of Saharanpur which recently saw clashes between two communities during Ambedkar Yatra.

He was also lauded for his role as an administrator during the Bisada lynching case and the racial attack against Africans in Greater Noida.

Meanwhile, BN Singh took charge at the treasury department in the presence of other administrative officials. He said his priority will be to ensure that the state government’s policies are expeditiously implemented.

“Whatever the priorities of the state government, will also be the priority of the district administration under my watch. We will be focussing on delivery and transparency. The parameter of every work done by the administration will be the satisfaction of the public and government,” the new district magistrate said.

BN Singh said the schemes, policies and plans announced by the state and union government will reach the public through an efficient government machinery system.

“I expect support and dedication from fellow officials of the district administration so that polices and schemes announced by the government can reach the needy. I also expect all officials and staff to be present in their office on time every day to serve the public,” he said.
