Asked whether she was the first woman to head a nuclear establishment, he said, "It is true. Though she is a bureaucrat, I am sure she has the potential to head the company until a new head is finalised."
     
A 1989-batch Indian Audit and Accounts Service (IAAS) officer, Sankaran had a Fellowship in International Auditing from the General Accountability Office, USA.
    
She was earlier Accountant General (Commercial and Receipt Audit), Tamil Nadu, Principal Director of Audit (South Central Railway) and Southern Railway.
    
The company is nearing completion and is expected to go on stream soon.
