Former bureaucrat and parliamentarian N.K. Singh will be honoured with Japan’s second highest national decoration for promoting economic, educational and cultural ties between India and Japan.

He will be conferred with the prestigious ‘The Order of the Rising Sun, Gold and Silver Star’ on May 10 by the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The ceremony will be held in Tokyo’s Imperial Palace followed by an audience with Emperor Akihito.

The Japan government has said that the recognition is being given for his “catalytic role” in developing better Indo-Japanese economic relations over decades.

Nk Singh has served in Japan during the investment decision of Maruti-Suzuki and the other Japanese automobile companies to India. He has been among the country’s top bureaucrats and handled important portfolios such as India’s Expenditure and Revenue Secretary and a Member of the Planning Commission.

The Order of the Rising Sun is a Japanese Government honor established in 1875 by Emperor Meiji. A modern version of the order is being given to non-Japanese recipients beginning from 1981. It is conferred in recognition of distinguished accomplishments of an individual.


The Logical Indian congratulates NK Singh for his distinguished achievement.
