India's largest telecom player, Bharti Airtel on Thursday, announced restructuring of its board of directors and that of its subsidiary Bharti Infratel. The changes have been effected in view of the proposed IPO of Bharti Infratel, which is a leading provider of passive telecom infrastructure in India, the company said in a press release.

Commenting on the restructuring, Sunil Bharti Mittal, Chairman and Managing Director, Bharti Airtel said, “These changes have been effected in line with our strong corporate governance culture and will ensure that Bharti and Singtel have distinct representatives on the Boards of Bharti Airtel and Bharti Infratel. I am confident that these two world-class Boards will continue to guide these companies to greater heights. I would also take this opportunity to thank the outgoing Directors for their contribution to the Board of Bharti Airtel.”
