Maha: Darius Khambata appointed Advocate General
Mumbai: Additional Solicitor General
Darius Khambata has been appointed as Maharashtra government`s
Advocate General, official sources said on Monday.
The post of Advocate General was lying vacant since
January 17 when Ravi Kadam resigned from the post citing
professional and personal reasons.
A decision was taken today by the Cabinet to appoint
Khambata as the Advocate General, the sources said, adding a
notification to this effect would be issued in a few days.
Khambata, who was appointed as Additional Solicitor
General in July 2009, has represented the union government
before the Bombay High Court in several matters including
Lavasa case, scam-tainted Adarsh Housing Society case,
Kripashanker Singh case and so on.
The union government will now have to appoint a new
additional solicitor general to replace Khambata.
Kadam was Advocate General for seven years and served
under the tenure of three chief ministers, Vilasrao Deshmukh,
Ashok Chavan and Prithviraj Chavan.
