F Sheheryar takes over as full-time DG, All India Radio

NEW DELHI: Former Joint Secretary (Broadcasting) in the Information and Broadcasting Ministry Supriya Sahu and F Sheheryar who has been holding additional charge for two years, are to be the new full-time Directors-General of Doordarshan and All India Radio respectively.

This decision is understood to have been taken after the Prasar Bharati Board interviewed ten candidates for the two posts on Wednesday.

Sheheryar, Deputy Director General, had taken over as interim DG in February 2014 in AIR while C Lalrosanga was inducted in April last year as interim DG in Doordarshan. Thus, Sheheryar has been confirmed for the post he was holding as additional charge.

Prasar Bharati sources told Radioandmusic.com that there were six persons from the Indian Broadcasting (Programme) Service, three from the Indian Information Service, and one from the Indian Administrative Service.
