Prasar Bharati gets a new chairman

After being headless for nearly three years, Prasar Bharati got a new chairman—space scientist U R Rao. An order to this effect was issued by information and broadcasting ministry following the recommendations made by a selection committee headed by vice-president Krishan Kant.

The post of the Chairman was vacant for the past three years. The last chairman of the board, Mr. Nikhil Chakraborty, died nearly three years ago. Mr. Rao will hold the post of the Chairman till November 2003.

The selection committee also appointed three new part-time members to the board – former V-C of Jamia Milia Lt. Gen M A Zaki, retired IAS official S Kasipandian and journalist Vidya Niwas Mishra.

The body still does not have a permanent chief executive officer, a post which has been filled by additional secretaries in the information and broadcasting ministry as acting CEOs, ever since SS Gill was removed more than three years ago. Mr. Anil Baijal is the acting CEO at present.
