New Delhi: The Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC) has approved the extension in the central deputation tenure of Alok Vardhan Chaturvedi, DG, Foreign Trade. Chaturvedi is an IAS of 1986 batch. His tenure has been extended from June 18, 2019, to September 30, 2019, which is the date of his superannuation, or until further orders whichever is earlier.

Earlier during the day, Chaturvedi commented on the recent trade war that is going on between the US and India. He said that “The tariff hike on 28 US products is not a sudden action but the move was notified last year itself and India was extending it, the tariffs must not be considered as a trade-war as India will continue to engage with the US and will be cooperating on a range of issues which is important from each other’s perspective”. Senior IAS maintained that there is not a 'trade-war' like situation between both the countries and the issues between the two can be and will be resolved through negotiations only.
