Actually, time is appropriate to review the procedures, processes , skill requirements and tenures for appointments to top positions in government, statutory bodies and public sector organisations including PSBs. As rightly observed, except where tenure gets reduced for valid or unforeseen reasons such appointments should be for a tenure of 5 years or more. What is coming in the way is the expediency and comfort level of politicians and bureaucrats to work with people who are on "temporary appointment"
Actually, by the same logic appointments of High Courts and Supreme Court also should be made tenure appointments for 5 to six years giving relaxations in age limits. After all, the present age limits were fixed long back when life expectancy and fitness levels were different.
