Prasar Bharti CEO Jawhar Sircar to step down in November?

According to a recent Facebook post by Jawhar Sircar, CEO of Prasar Bharti, he might be hanging up his boots in November this year, a few months before his tenure is officially slated to come to an end in February 2017.

“Since news is out today: I will clarify. I hope to be back in Kolkata by NOV. After 41+ years service, I want to retire: just to read, write and relate,” he wrote in the post.


Sircar would not comment on the speculation. However, a source within Prasar Bharti familiar with developments informed us that an early retirement could be on the cards.

Sircar has over 40 years of experience. He served as Secretary of the Ministry of Culture, Government of India from late 2008 to February 2012, where he reported directly to the Prime Minister for most of his tenure. He resigned to take over his current position in 2012.

As reported by exchange4media  , Prasar Bharti has also appointed former I&B secretary Sunil Arora as an advisor earlier this year.
