Odisha Cadre IAS Officer Usha Padhee To Helm Pawan Hans

New Delhi: Usha Padhee, the 1996-batch Odisha cadre IAS officer, has been given additional charge of disinvestment-bound Pawah Hans Ltd.

She is the first woman to head Pawan Hans, the state-run helicopter company which has 46 choppers in its fleet.

Her appointment was announced by Pawan Hans on its Twitter handle on Sunday morning.
Padhee is currently serving as joint secretary in the ministry of civil aviation and is looking after the government’s ambitious UDAN scheme that seeks to connect major cities and metros with unserved and under-served areas in the country.

She is being widely credited for the successful rollout of the UDAN phase III programme. Jharsuguda airport has reaped a rich dividend from this phase. The airport began operations from March 31 with SpiceJet launching operations from there. In all, six cities will be connected with Jharsuguda.
