Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IndianOil) announced that Rajendra Arlekar has resigned as an independent director of the union government-owned oil and gas company with immediate effect.
Rajendra Arlekar said that he had resigned from the role as he was appointed as the new Governor of Himachal Pradesh state in India.
In a letter to the chairman of IndianOil SM Vaidya, Rajendra Arlekar said that it will not be possible to continue as an independent director of the company due to the Governor’s post.
The 67-year-old confirmed that there is no other reason apart from that for his resignation from IndianOil.
