Kolkata/IBNS: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday brought a rejig at the top level of bureaucracy in her state.

Banerjee has announced the appointment of Alapan Bandyopadhyay, who is serving as the Additional Chief Secretary (Home and Information), as the new CS of the state effective from Oct 1.

Finance Secretary HK Dwivedi will replace Bandyopadhyay as the Home Secretary while Manoj Pant will become the new Finance Secretary from Oct 1.

The CM tweeted, "I'm pleased to announce that Alapan Bandyopadhyay, now Addnl Chief Secy (Home & Information) is appointed as the new Chief Secretary of WB. H K Dwivedi, hitherto Finance Secy, will be new Home Secy & Manoj Pant takes charge of Finance w.e.f. 1st Oct. Best wishes to (the) entire team."
