Subhash Chandra, the Founder and Chairman of Zee Entertainment Limited, has resigned from his position. The resignation was announced during a company board meeting organised on November 25.

The board accepted his resignation but insisted him to continue being the company's non-executive director. Chandra founded the company back in 1992.

Chandra’s resignation comes after a few major global investors bought 16.5% stake in Essel Group’s ZEEL. The discussion was taken in order to repay loan obligations to certain lenders of the Group. Earlier this year, Essel Group had also sold 11% in Zee Entertainment to Invesco Oppenheimer Developing Markets Fund for ₹4,224 crore.

Subhash Chandra’s son, Punit Goenka, will continue being the CEO and MD of ZEEL.
