Correct Answer : Option (C) - Vinay Mohan Kwatra

Note :

India’s ambassador to Nepal and an IFS officer of 1988 batch, Vinay Mohan Kwatra will take over as the new foreign secretary upon incumbent Harsh Vardhan Shringla’s retirement later this month, the government announced Monday(4th Apr 2022).
 
Kwatra will bring with him vast experience accumulated from key positions that he has held over 34 years. Shringla is likely to be appointed a special coordinator for G20 after his retirement, an official source said.
 
Described by his colleagues as a low-key but solid, conventional diplomat, Kwatra has served in Washington, Beijing and also the Indian consulate in Karachi in 1993 before it was shut down. He has served as ambassador to a P-5 country, France, and also Nepal, a key neighbour. He was appointed ambassador in Kathmandu in the middle of a flare-up of the border dispute that saw Nepal controversially redrawing its political map. After a while though, the 2 countries managed to keep a lid on the dispute and prevented it from coming in the way of bilateral cooperation. They reaffirmed commitment to bilateral cooperation, particularly in energy and connectivity, during the visit of Nepal PM Sher Bahadur Deuba last week and agreed to address the boundary issue "responsibly" and without politicising it..
