Rajesh Deshmukh as Pune District Collector

Rajesh has been appointed as the District Collector of Pune. The incumbent DC has been transferred to the Prime Minister Office (PMO). The condition of Pune is deteriorating steadily as far as spread of Covid – 19 pandemic is concerned. It has already surpassed Mumbai. The Government wanted an officer who can handle the tricky situation and save the city. And, they zeroed in on Rajesh. Another maverick IAS officer G. Shreekanth was also in the reckoning.

Before being the DC of Pune, Rajesh was Chairman of Hafkine Bio Pharma. In this profile, he was taking care of Covid – 19 testing strategy of Maharshtra. He was the nodal officer for testing.
