RAJASTHAN : Senior IAS officer and additional chief secretary (finance) CK Mathew was named new chief secretary of Rajasthan on Tuesday. He will replace Salauddin Ahmed, who is retiring on February 29.

A 1977-batch IAS officer, Mathew has held several important positions in the past. He is said to be among chief minister Ashok Gehlot’s favourite officers due to his efficient but low-key style of working. Mathew was the secretary to Ashok Gehlot during his first stint as chief minister in state.

During the previous Gehlot government, Mathew was closely associated with the CM as a secretary in his office. He started his administrative career in 1979 as sub divisional officer (SDO) in Udaipur. Thereafter he became the Collector of Barmer and Bhilwara.

He held senior positions in irrigation, mines and energy departments and took over as principal secretary (finance) in the year 2008. Mathew, who has written two novels — The Mustard Flower and The Best is Yet to Come— is an avid writer and blogger.

C.K. Mathew Son of C.K. Kochukoshy IAS. C.K. Mathew is currently a Member of St. Thomas Orthodox Church, Jaipur.

  3. Malankara Orthodox Church has been blessed with many good IAS like CK Kochu Koshy, Gigi Thomson and P H Kurian. We haev another young man in IFS now (Son of Rev Fr Dr K M George). Hope we will have many Daniels and Joseph who were good adminsters from the Bible WE pray that the rise of C K Mathew, IAS would encourage many youngsters.
    We expect to see many more from his pen, particulalry on Orthodox faith. I felt the writer should have introduced the family of C K Mathew sir as well.
