The British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s mother-in-law ended her career working for her wealthy husband’s internet company’s charitable arm on Friday when she was appointed to the Indian parliament.

The 73-year-old Sudha Murty was formerly the chair of the Infosys Foundation, which her husband N.R. Narayana Murthy co-founded in 1981 as the charitable arm of the multinational software giant Infosys.

2009 saw the marriage of the couple’s daughter Akshata to Sunak.

Following President Droupadi Murmu’s announcement of Murthy’s nomination to the upper chamber, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his “delight.”

The prime minister of India, Narendra Modi, stated on social media that she has made “incredible and inspiring contributions to diverse fields including social work, philanthropy, and education.”

The majority of the members of India’s upper house are chosen by election, but the president appoints 12 of them—typically accomplished public figures—to the assembly for six-year terms.

Murty called her nomination a “privilege and honor,” and her appointment is effective immediately.

“I am very grateful for the opportunity to serve our nation,” she wrote in a post on X, formerly Twitter.

By training, Murty is an engineer, but she is also a feted author, and her foundation is recognized for having helped build libraries in remote regions.

For her achievements in social work, Sudha was awarded India’s third-highest civilian honor, the Padma Bhushan, by the government last year.

According to Forbes, Narayana Murthy’s net worth is $4.7 billion.

He has previously stated that in order to launch his company, which is currently the first Indian company to be listed on the New York stock exchange and the seventh-largest in India by market capitalization, he had to borrow money from his wife.

In 2022, a significant year for India’s relationship with its erstwhile colonial ruler, Sunak, then 43, became the first prime minister of South Asian heritage to hold the position in Britain.

The South Asian nation eclipsed Britain to become the fifth-largest economy in the world just weeks before the 75th anniversary of India’s independence from Britain was celebrated in August of that year.
