Arun Jaitley resumes duty as Finance Minister

Arun Jaitley, who stepped aside as Finance Minister in mid-May to undergo a kidney transplant, on Thursday resumed duty as Minister for Finance and Corporate Affairs.

Jaitley, 65, had stopped attending office at the beginning of April.

“The President of India, as advised by the Prime Minister, has directed to assign the portfolios of the Minister of Finance and Minister of Corporate Affairs to Arun Jaitley,” an official notification issued said.

Jaitley had undergone a renal transplant operation on May 14. On that day, the charge of his ministry was given to Minister for Railways and Coal Piyush Goyal on an interim basis. Since his surgery he has been staying in controlled environment as per the doctors advice. He, however, attended the Rajya Sabha for the election of Deputy Chairman on August 9.

This was his first public appearance in over four months.
