"Dilip Oommen, CEO, Arcelor Mittal Nippon Steel India has taken over as President of ISA. This was decided in the Extra Ordinary Board Meeting of ISA, which was held today, May 19, 2020," the body said in a statement.

Oommen was unanimously appointed as President for the next two years.
An ISA official said Oommen has been appointed the President with immediate effect, and his two-year tenure ends in May 2022.
"Oommen is a veteran of the steel industry with more than 37 years of experience and an alumnus of Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur (IIT-K)," the ISA statement said.
