India's Foreign Secretary, Vinay Mohan Kwatra, who was due for superannuation on December 31 this year, has been granted an extension until April 30, 2024, according to Indian media reports.

In a notification issued today, the Secretariat of the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet, Ministry of Personnel, said that the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet had approved extension in service to the Foreign Secretary "beyond the date of his superannuation on December 31, 2022, up to April 30, 2024", the NDTV online reported.

This effectively means the Foreign Secretary will be in office until the end of the current government's term in 2024.

Earlier, the Union government had granted extensions to key bureaucrats such as the Cabinet Secretary, Home Secretary, the chief of Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), and the Director of Enforcement Directorate.

Kwatra, a 1988 batch Indian Foreign Service (IFS) officer, took charge in May this year as the 34th Foreign Secretary of India, succeeding Harsh Vardhan Shringla. He had earlier served as India's Ambassador to Nepal.
