The appointment of Arora, a 1980-batch IAS officer of Rajasthan cadre and presently Secretary Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, comes at a time when the I&B ministry is in the midst of several important activities including the e-auctions of Phase III FM radio stations and Phase III and IV of Digitisation.
