ASG Parasaran to replace Rohinton Nariman as Solicitor General

Breaking: Several sources have confirmed that Supreme Court additional solicitor general Mohan Parasaran will replace outgoing solicitor general of India Rohinton Nariman who resigned on Monday.

It is understood that Parasaran received a telephone call from a senior government official today offering him the appointment today, which he orally accepted.

Tax Sutra's Arun Giri first broke the story earlier today, citing sources [story, behind paywall].

Parasaran is the son of former attorney general of India and senior advocate K Parasaran. He was designated a senior advocate in 2002, and was first appointed an additional solicitor general in the Supreme Court in 2004.

Nariman had resigned from the office on Monday allegedly over difference of opinion with the law minister Ashwini Kumar. Legally India Supreme Court postcard writer Courtwitness tweeted: “[Rohinton F Nariman], from what I gather, did not like being ordered around by someone whom he does not think is as good a lawyer as him.”
