Satyen Chattopadhyay

Satyen [S.N.] Chattopadhyay is a retired bureaucrat of the 1959 batch of the Indian Defence Accounts Service [IDAS], possibly the oldest civil service in India, dating back to 1740. Born in a Bengali joint family, "Chatto" as he was called by his batch mates and colleagues, was one of the fortunate few to have held positions within the department as well as on deputation that required restructuring, revival, reconstruction of organizations as well as the setting up of institutions and systems that help improve the efficiency of the civil services even today. Towards the end of his career, he was part of a core team that played a critical role in the liberalization of the Indian economy in 1991 under the able leadership of the then Prime Minister and Finance Minister. After retirement in 1993, he has kept himself busy with writing poetry, spending time with his wife and son in Gurgaon, lamenting over the standards of the East Bengal Football Club and egging on Rafael Nadal to win his 25th grand slam!
