Direct-to-home operator Dish TV has said Chairman Jawahar Lal Goel will vacate his position at the company’s upcoming AGM on September 26, 2022.
Goel, whose proposal for reappointment as Managing Director was rejected by the shareholders in an extraordinary meeting (EGM) held in June this year, has not reapplied for continuation as Chairman.
In a regulatory filing Dish TV said,”Jawahar Lal Goel, Chairman, and Non-Executive Director, shall vacate his office at the ensuing AGM on account of having expressed his unwillingness to offer himself for reappointment as a Director.”
The board of Dish TV, in a meeting held on Tuesday, also approved the convening of the 34th AGM of the company on September 26, 2022, virtually through video conferencing and other audio visual means, PTI reported from New Delhi.
The board also noted that the term of its Independent Director Bhagwan Das Narang shall expire on the date of the ensuing Annual General Meeting, “… upon completion of his second term and accordingly, Narang shall vacate his office of Director on the said date”.
Earlier in June, Jawahar Goel stepped down from the post after the shareholders of the DTH operator rejected the proposal to reappoint him in the extraordinary general meeting. However, he was continuing as a Non-Executive Director.
