Mr. Vahanvati was appointed as the 13th AG from June 2009 for a three-year term.
In 2012, his term as Attorney General was extended by another two years. He resigned on May 27 this year after the BJP-led government headed by Narendra Modi took over power at the Centre.
Born on May 7, 1949, Mr. Vahanvati obtained a law degree from Government Law College in Mumbai after graduating from St. Xavier’s College.
He was suffering from a lung infection for some time and was admitted to a city hospital.
