Recalled from central deputation, Madhav Lal took over the chief secretary of J&K state on 01-02-2011.

Dewan is a resident of Lari Dara village of Baramullah district but his father had settled in Delhi in 1960's.
In IFS, Jagdish Kishwan has the distinction of been the only officer of 1975 batch, J&K cadre after the retirement of Irshad Ahmed Khan on August 31, 2011.
