Deepak Raja to replace PK Lahiri as INS Secretary General

PK Lahiri, Secretary General of Indian Newspaper Society (INS), is relinquishing his office on January 31, 2005, after serving the organisation for seven years. He will be replaced by Deepak Raja, a media and advertising veteran who has a consultancy on the media and advertising business. The Executive Committee of the INS at its meeting in Kolkata on November 30 took the decision to replace Lahiri.

According to Lahiri, Raja will join INS from mid-January and will work with him in the capacity of Secretary General-designate before finally taking over as the full-fledged Secretary General from February 1.

Confirming this development, Lahiri told exchange4media that he had expressed his desire to INS President Pradeep Guha to be relieved of his office even though a few months remained for the completion of his current three-year term. Lahiri, an ex-civil servant who joined INS in 1997, had already completed an initial five-year term.

Sources in INS told exchange4media that the executive committee had taken a view that instead of a bureaucrat, a veteran from the industry should be given the responsibility of Secretary General for making the organization more market driven and proactive.
