Kulkarni hails from Savanur in the Haveri district. He joined the IB in 1963. He had served in different roles and positions for three and a half decades in the IB. He had rendered his services in the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) and other central government agencies. Kulkarni retired 23 years ago.
