  • V Vidyavathi, the newly appointed secretary of tourism, reviews the G20 event in Goa preparations.

As the new Union tourism secretary, senior IAS officer V Vidyavathi from the Karnataka cadre is in charge. Arvind Singh is succeeded by an Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer from the 1991 batch.

Vidyavathi examined the plans for the upcoming G20 activities in Goa shortly after taking over.

“The Ministry of Tourism bids Shri Arvind Singh goodbye and extends a hearty welcome to Ms. V. Vidyavathi as the new Secretary, with the highest warmth and thanks! The Ministry of Tourism tweeted on Friday, “The Ministry of Tourism sends sincere thanks to Shri Arvind Singh for his unrelenting devotion and eagerness.

Before recently being named the Officer on Special Duty in the tourism ministry, Vidyavathi was the director general of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI).

After Arvind Singh, an IAS officer from the 1988 batch, retires on May 31 of this year, the officer will take over as secretary of the Ministry of Tourism, according to a directive from the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions on April 20. Before the key fourth Tourism Working Group (TWG) Meeting and the G20 Ministerial Meeting in Goa later this month, Vidyavathi assumes leadership. After the last G20 TWG meeting, the “GOA Roadmap” and a ministerial communiqué approving it will be made public.

The Tourism Ministry sent another tweet with the following message: “Expect the leadership of Ms. V. Vidyavathi to pave the way for an extraordinary journey ahead in shaping the future of tourism in India.”
