Indian diplomat Vipul has become the new Consul General of India in Dubai.

He succeeds Anurag Bhushan, who returned to New Delhi to take up assignment at the headquarters.

Vipul, who only uses his first name, is a 1998 batch Indian Foreign Service officer who worked as a joint secretary at the office of India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj for the past three years. He had also served at India’s diplomatic missions in Cairo, Colombo and Geneva.

He assumed office through the official Twitter account of the Indian Consulate in Dubai. In the tweet, he said he looked forward to contributing to India-UAE relations and the welfare of the Indian community.

The Indian Consulate Dubai website, while giving details about the career of the new consul-general, said, “In his diplomatic career, he has worked in diverse departments including political and commercial relations, development, disarmament, international security and media.”

“Vipul did his graduation in Mechanical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi. He also holds an MBA from Indian School of Business, Hyderabad. He is married to Kirti and they have a four-year-old daughter,” said the website.

He also has a good command over the Arabic language.
