New Delhi, June 28, 2021: The central government has decided to extend the tenure of K K Venugopal as the Attorney General by one year, news agency PTI reported today.
Though the attorney general usually has a tenure of three years, when his first term as A-G was to end last year, Venugopal had requested the government to give him a one-year tenure keeping in mind his advanced age. He is 90.
Keeping in mind the high profile cases he is handling in the Supreme Court and his experience at the Bar, the government has decided to extend his tenure for one more year, the sources said.
