Tarun Kapoor, Adviser to PM Modi, Granted Extension Co-Terminus with Prime Minister’s Term

Tarun Kapoor

In a significant development, Tarun Kapoor, a retired IAS officer of the 1987 batch from the Himachal Pradesh cadre, serving as Adviser to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has been granted a weeks-long extension in his tenure. This extension aligns with the term of Prime Minister Modi, effectively extending Kapoor’s tenure co-terminus with that of the Prime Minister.

Kapoor’s initial term, which began on May 2, 2022, was slated to conclude on May 2, 2024. However, this recent extension ensures his continued presence and counsel within the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) for the foreseeable future.

Prior to his pivotal role in the PMO, Kapoor held various high-ranking positions in the government, notably serving as the Chairman of the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB). His extensive experience also includes his tenure as the Petroleum Secretary, a position from which he retired in November 2021.

Kapoor’s continued presence in the advisory capacity underscores the importance of his expertise and insights in guiding crucial policy decisions within the government. This extension further solidifies his role in shaping the trajectory of key initiatives under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
