The appointments committee of the cabinet has extended the tenure of NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant for another two years from until June 30, 2021. Kant was appointed as CEO of the central government think tank in February 2016 for a two-year period.

Additionally, defence minister Rajnath Singh, finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman and agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar may be selected as ex-officio members.

Kant has also served as chairman and CEO of Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corporation, CMD-ITDC, joint secretary at Ministry of Tourism, Government of India, secretary of tourism, Government of Kerala. He had also held the position of managing director at Kerala State Industrial Development Corporation, district collector at Kozikhode and managing director, Matsyafed.
