The public sector firm had been functioning without a chief since the retirement of its incumbent CMD Subhash Kumar on 31 December.

When an incumbent director retires, the order to replace the person is usually issued two-three days before the superannuation, which hadn’t happened for ONGC, leaving the company without a head for over 48 hours.

A post graduate in Economics, MBA (HRM) and Doctorate in Commerce and Business Studies, Mittal had joined ONGC as a graduate trainee in 1985, as per MoneyControl. Before joining as director (HR), Mittal held the charge of chief skill development (CSD) of the company. As CSD in-charge, she streamlined the activities and brought in uniformity in the working of the skill development centres of ONGC, as per the report.

She also implemented National Apprenticeship Promotion Scheme (NAPS) in ONGC.
