Ex-I&B Secretary Pawan Chopra replaces Deepak Raja as INS Secretary General

The Secretariat of the Indian Newspaper Society (INS) will soon have a new team in place. Following the end of his notice period, Secretary General Deepak S Raja has moved on from the organisation. Replacing him is former Information & Broadcasting Secretary Pawan Chopra.

Raja had requested, through an email on August 14, 2006, to then INS President Jacob Mathew, that he be relieved of his duties on September 14, 2006. The notice period has now ended.

New INS President Hormusji Cama told exchange4media that Chopra would join INS on October 9, 2006. Said Cama, “When Pawan was I&B Secretary, we had a lot of interaction with him. He was extremely helpful and always gave us a very patient hearing. He knows the media and our problems, and even though he has been on the other side of the table for a long time, I think that he brings immense value to INS.”

In addition to Raja, R K Guptan, Deputy Secretary General, INS, has also moved on.

Cama informed that Annie Joseph, who has been the INS Secretary for almost 20 years, would assist Chopra in creating his team. Said Cama, “Guptan isn’t with us at present. It is up to Pawan to create his own team; whether he wants to bring Guptan back or look for new hands, I leave that to him.”
