On his re-appointment Singh said "I am delighted that
my industry colleagues continue to have faith in me to guide
the IBF. The last year has been very eventful for our industry

We need to build on the success of content regulation, continue
the process of digitisation and work collaboratively with
the broader industry."

CEO Uday Shankar in 2012. Johri was the treasurer last year
while Lulla was the vice-president.
