BJP Spokesperson Sambit Patra Made ITDC Chairperson

Bhubaneswar: BJP Spokesperson Sambit Patra has been appointed as the Chairman of India Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC), a listed company.

He will also serve as a part-time non-executive director of ITDC and remain in this post for the next 3 years.

His appointment followed the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet approval to the Tourism Ministry’s proposal to split the post of chairman and managing director of ITDC.

With this, the existing CMD Ganji Kamala V Rao, a 1990-batch Kerala cadre officer, will only serve as Managing Director.

Notably, Patra was named an independent director of the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) in 2017. He had also unsuccessfully contested the 2019 Lok Sabha election from Puri.
