As per a notification issued by the Ministry of Law and Justice, “The President is pleased to appoint Shri R. Venkataramani, Senior Advocate as Attorney General for India for a period of three years from the date he enters upon his office.”

Born on April 13, 1950 in Puducherry, Venkataramani enrolled as a lawyer in July, 1977 with the Bar Council of Tamil Nadu. He started practicing in the Supreme Court in 1979. He was designated as Senior Advocate of the Apex Court in 1997.
