NBSA appoints Justice RV Raveendran as Chairperson

Former Supreme Court judge Justice RV Raveendran will head the News Broadcasting Standards Authority (NBSA) as its Chairperson. NBSA is an independent redressal body set up by the News Broadcasters Association (NBA) and has leading TV news channels as its members.

Before Raveendran, former Chief Justice of India, Justice JS Verma, was heading the NBSA. Verma passed away in April 2013 due to multiple organ failure.

Justice Raveendran retired as a senior judge in Supreme Court on October 14, 2011, upon reaching superannuation. He became an advocate in 1968. He was inducted to the Karnataka High Court in 1993. He became the Chief Justice of the Madhya Pradesh High Court in 2004, and was elevated to the Supreme Court of India in October 2005.

Justice Raveendran has seen several high profile cases such as the OBC reservation, 1993 Mumbai bombings and the Krishna-Godavari basin dispute. He also recused from the Krishna-Godavari basin dispute case citing conflict of interest.
