Today the founder of Network18 media group Raghav Bahl resigned as the Managing Director of Network18, but will continue as a non-executive director on the board of the company.
Reliance Industries said that that Independent Media Trust (IMT), of which it is the sole beneficiary, has completed the acquisition of control of Network 18 Media and Investments and its subsidiary TV18 Broadcast Limited.

According to a statement by Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), after this transaction Independent Media Trust (IMT) and RIL have become promoters of Network18 and TV18.
