HT Media Executive Director Benoy Roychowdhury has been appointed as the chairman of Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI).
Roychowdhury is also a Whole-Time Director at Hindustan Media Ventures.
Besides, Srinivasan K Swamy was elected as Vice Chairman and Shashidhar Sinha was re-appointed as treasurer.
Commenting on the development, ASCI's outgoing chairman Narendra Ambwani said, "It has been quite an eventful year for ASCI. We had set four key priorities for the year -- collaboration with regulators, easier consumer access to ASCI services, inculcate self-discipline among creators of advertising and be seen as fair adjudicator by all stakeholders".
Roychowdhury said: "ASCI has evolved to match the pace by significantly improving the efficiency and speed in ASCI's consumer redressal process".
