Uday Shankar

Outgoing President Uday Shankar thanked all members for their support during his two-year term. “Last two years have been very important for the broadcasting industry with new changes and technology being ushered in. I have had the most eventful tenure as President as I witnessed all these changes happening right in front of me, be it DAS or institutionalising the self-regulating mechanism in the form of Broadcasting Content Complaints Council (BCCC),” he said.

“It is a moment of change and I would expect that the momentum that we have generated finds a new impetus after my presidency,” Shankar added, pledging all support to his successor Man Jit Singh. He advised IBF members to be “well prepared for the implementation of digitisation and plugging the loopholes, if any, before the deadline”.
