In a regulatory filing on Tuesday (29 November), NDTV said that it was informed that the RRPRH's board of directors have approved the resignation of Prannoy and Radhika Roy.

Further, the Board has also approved the appointment of Sudipta Bhattacharya, Sanjay Pugalia, and Senthil Sinniah Chengalvarayan as directors on the Board of RRPRH, with immediate effect, the company said.

While Sudipta Bhattacharya is the CEO of Adani Group, Sanjay Pugalia is the CEO and Editor in chief of AMG Media Network, and Senthil Sinniah Chengalvarayan is director at Adani group-owned VCPL.

Earlier in August this year, Vishvapradhan Commercial Private Limited (VCPL), a wholly owned subsidiary of AMG Media Networks Limited (AMNL) which is a fully-owned subsidiary of Adani Enterprises Limited (AEL), exercised the rights and acquired 99.5 per cent of the equity shares of RRPR Holding Private Limited, a promoter group company of NDTV.

Following this,Adani Group decided to make an open offer to acquire the additional 26 per cent state stake in NDTV, which will take the group's total stake to 55.18 per cent, enough to take the ownership right of NDTV.
