Former managing director of State Electric Company Limited (STELCO) who was appointed a member of the Privatization and Corporatization Board (PCB) on Thursday has been dismissed from the post.

PCB, on X, posted the names of the new members appointed to the board on Tuesday. Mughnee’s name was not included on the list.

The current composition of PCB is as follows;
