He has earlier served as joint secretary in the Ministry of Civil Aviation,director in the Ministry of Power and executive director in NMCG.

Infrastructure projects to his credit include the Outer Ring Road project in Hyderabad, Phase 2 of the MGD Krishna Drinking Water Project, the MGD Godavari Drinking Water Project and many sewerage treatment plants. Kumar, who is the recipient of several awards such as the SKOCH Award for Public Services 2021, the Jal-Mitra award from the Andhra Pradesh government and the first Telangana Excellence Award for outstanding work in public administration, is also the founder and president of the India Smart Grid Forum. We wish him luck on his new journey!
