Nepali Congress leader Deep Kumar Upadhyay was on 16 January 2015 appointed as Nepal's ambassador to India. The post was lying vacant since 2011.

The decision to appoint Deep Kumar Upadhyay was taken at the cabinet meeting headed by Nepal’s Prime Minister Sushil Kumar Koirala. He is a Central Working Committee member of the Nepali Congress party.

Earlier, Upadhyay has served as an assistant finance minister of Nepal. However, he does not have experience in foreign affairs as he had never served any diplomatic position earlier.

The post was lying vacant for more than 3 years when the Maoist-led government called back its ambassador to India Rukma Shukshere Rana in August 2011. She was called back after she was found serving as the Managing Director of Indian joint venture Dabur Nepal.
