Anil Baijal to head Prasar Bharati

The government, in a drastic move, has terminated the extension given to Mr. RR Shah, as the Prasar Bharati CEO. Mr. Anil Baijal, a 1969 IAS officer and former chief of Indian Airlines have replaced Mr. Shah. Mr. Baijal, who is currently Chief Secretary Andaman & Nicobar, will be the acting CEO of the Prasar Bharati for six months, besides holding the post of Additional Secretary in the I&B Ministry.

The government has announced another significant appointment, that of the I&B Secretary. Mr. Pawan Chopra, an Additional Secretary in the Cabinet Secretariat, has been appointed the new I&B Secretary in place of Mr. YN Chaturvedi who retires on January 31.

Even though the government, through these top-level changes, is attempting to send a general message that it's setting its house in order, the Prasar Bharati continues to be an ad-hoc organisation with a temporary CEO being inducted all over again. Despite the selection committee meeting several times over the past one month, it has failed to reach a consensus on who should be the Prasar Bharati CEO.
