Bhubaneswar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi finally accepted the voluntary retirement plea of Odisha cadre IAS officer Aparajita Sarangi following State’s approval.

The bureaucrat confirmed it on her microblogging site Twitter.

Earlier, her request for VRS (Voluntary Retirement Scheme) had been accepted by the Odisha government.

The 1994-batch Odisha cadre IAS officer Sarangi had applied for voluntary retirement from service on September 15.

She was serving as the Joint Secretary of MGNREGA under Ministry of Rural Development. Her five-year tenure on central deputation ended in August.

The 49-year-old Sarangi is likely to join the politics soon.

The bureaucrat had remained in media glare for her strict principles and several measures during her tenure in the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) from 2006 to 2009.

Married to her batchmate Santosh Sarangi, she had worked as Director of Panchayati Raj Department, School and Mass Education Secretary, Higher Education Secretary and Textiles and Handloom Secretary.
