The Union government after modifying the appointment order that was issued in 2018 has extended the tenure of Enforcement Directorate (ED) Director Sanjay Kumar Mishra by a year.

The ED is a central investigative agency that enforces two central laws i.e. the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) and the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA).

Sanjay Kumar Mishra, who is a 1984-batch Indian Revenue Service officer of the Income-tax cadre, was appointed as ED’s director on November 19, 2018, and his tenure was to end next week.

The Department of Revenue under the Union Finance Ministry modified Mishra’s appointment order and extended his tenure.

“The President of India is pleased to approve the modification in the earlier order dated November 19, 2018, appointing Shri Sanjay Kumar Mishra as director of enforcement in the Enforcement Directorate,” it said.

It added that his appointment will be for a period of three years from the date of assumption of charge of the post or until further orders, whichever is earlier.
