It is learnt that Shankkar Aiyar has quit India Today as Managing Editor. Aiyar had been with the India Today Group for over 13 years. Rumour circles were abuzz with talks of Aiyar’s promotion. However, as it turns out, he has left India Today altogether. The cause for his parting ways with the India Today Group is not known yet.
Aiyar’s journalistic career spans over 25 years. He specialises in economics and politics, with special emphasis on the interface between the two. Aiyar was based in Delhi and was responsible for the magazine’s coverage of political economy, governance, corporate and financial markets. Aiyar also used to take care of several regional editions of India Today.
It will be interesting to see who steps into Aiyar’s shoes. Despite repeated attempts, India Today officials did not offer any comments on the development.
