New Delhi/UNI: President Ram Nath Kovind on Saturday administered the oath of Chief Information Commissioner (CIC) to Yashvardhan Kumar Sinha at a ceremony held here at Rashtrapati Bhavan.

The 62-year-old Sinha will have a tenure of about three years as the CIC.

Sinha, a 1981-batch Indian Foreign Service officer, had earlier served as Central Information Commissioner.

Several officers and employees of the President's Secretariat were present during his oath ceremony.

The post of CIC went vacant after Bimal Julka attained superannuation on August 26.
