Former Information and Broadcasting Secretary Sunil Arora has been appointed as an advisor in public broadcaster Prasar Bharati.
It is learnt that the ministry had sent a proposal to Prasar Bharati some time back seeking that Arora be made an advisor, which has been accepted, sources said.
A 1980-batch IAS officer of Rajasthan cadre, Arora was the I&B secretary before he retired earlier this year. He was involved in the implementation of digital addressable system (DAS) in Phase III areas. The Phase III FM radio auctions also took place during his tenure.
