New Delhi: K.K Venugopal was reappointed as the Attorney General for India for one year.
His present three-year term ends on Tuesday.
Senior government officials had earlier said that the Centre had written to Venugopal, 89, about its plan to give him a fresh tenure.
In his reply, the top law officer said due to his advanced age, he would prefer to have a one-year fresh stint.
