Jammu: After much delay, Jammu and Kashmir is set to constitute its first state information commission.
Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, Deputy Chief Minister Tara Chand and opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader Mehbooba Mufti are scheduled to meet Thursday afternoon to decide on the names of the chief information commissioner and two information commissioners.
Officials refused to reveal the names under consideration, but sources said a senior bureaucrat who is to retire Jan 31, a former state intelligence chief and a retired income tax officer are among those in the race.
