Attorney General Rohatgi's term extended

The Centre has extended the terms of Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi and Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar. The three-year term of both the officers was coming to an end in June.

The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet has also extended the term of five additional solicitor generals.

The Prime Minister’s Office and the law ministry had earlier sent informal messages to the senior lawyers that the government was keen on retaining them. Law minister speaks to the law officers to seek their consent, which is later reproduced in notifications of their appointments. While Rohatgi was appointed attorney general on June 11, 2014, Kumar was named solicitor general on June 7, the same year.
