(plastemart) -- The Chatterjee Group has assumed responsibility of the selection process to find a new managing director for Haldia Petrochemicals, with the incumbent Swapan Bhowmik set to retire in three months. The post of managing director has been a long disputed topic between promoters TCG and the Bengal government.
Purnendu Chatterjee, chairman of TCG, is holding interviews on his own with probable candidates to head Bengal's showcase industrial venture. The candidates chosen by Purnendu will have to appear for another round of interview before a search panel that include chairman Tarun Das, Bengal government nominee and state industry secretary Dipankar Mukhopadhyay, independent member Jamshyd Godrej and vice-chairman Purnendu Chatterjee himself. The committee will shortlist the candidate only from the list that Chatterjee is going to provide.
