‘Indianmandarins’ reliably learns that Manpreet Vohra (IFS:1988) may be named as successor to Amar Sinha as India’s next Ambassador to Afghanistan. The post has virtually fallen vacant after Amar Sinha (IFS:1982) was named as Secretary (East) last week.
Vohra is presently posted in MEA HQ (Delhi) as Joint Secretary, Development Partnership Administration-I. Prior to his present assignment (MEA HQ) he served as India’s Ambassador to Peru from May 2011 to April 2015. Sources say that during his three and a half year long tenure trade between India and Peru had doubled despite the absence of a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between the two countries.
