Former Income Tax Commissioner R Mohan has been appointed private secretary to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. He will assume charge on Thursday. Mr Mohan, who resigned from the post in Coimbatore more than a year ago, is currently visiting fellow at  Gulati Institute of Finance and Taxation and the Centre for Development Studies.
