Odia Officer Siddhartha Mohanty To Head LIC

New Delhi: Odia Officer Siddhartha Mohanty has been named as next chairperson of LIC. Mohanty is the first Odia to head the insurance behemoth.

The Financial Services Institutions Bureau (FSIB), the headhunter for directors of state-owned banks and financial institutions, on Thursday selected him to head the biggest insurance firm.

As per the guidelines, the chairman is selected from the four managing directors of the company.

After interviewing four candidates based on their overall experience and extant parameters on March 23, 2023, FSIB recommended Siddhartha Mohanty for the position of Chairperson in LIC of India, the Bureau said in a statement.

Currently, Siddhartha Mohanty, managing director of LIC, is the acting chairman of the country’s biggest life insurance firm after the completion of the term of MR Kumar on March 13, 2023. The final decision on the FSIB recommendation will be taken by the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Mohanty would have retired on June 30, 2023 had he not been selected by the FSIB. However, as a chairman of LIC he would serve till the age of 62 years.

The government in 2021 extended the superannuation age of the LIC Chairman to up to 62 years by making an amendment to the Life Insurance Corporation of India (Staff) Regulations, 1960.

The changes made in the rules are called the Life Insurance Corporation of India (Staff) Amendment Rules, 2021.

It is to be noted that the retirement age for the top executives of the majority of PSUs is 60 years, barring a few exceptions, including the State Bank of India (SBI).
