NEW DELHI: K.S. Sarma, CEO of India's autonomous public service broadcaster Prasar Bharati, has been elected vice president of the Commonwealth Broadcasting Association (CBA).

Sarma was elected at the CBA's three-day 25th general conference that concluded in Fiji Thursday, a Prasar Bharati statement here said.

Sarma is currently vice president of the Asia- Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU).

His election "underlines the important role played by Doordarshan (television) and All India Radio in promoting public service broadcasting in the world," the statement said.

The CBA is made up of 101 members from 55 countries and almost all public radio and television organisations of the Commonwealth countries are its members.

It aims to develop broadcasting skills through training, foster freedom of expression and further public service broadcasting.
