Davinder Singh Bal has stepped down as Director of The Sikh Channel.

Bal, who has been suspended as solicitor by the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal, resigned a few days ago. It was confirmed on Companies House that he resigned on 22nd October. Amrita Kaur Bal has since then be appointed as Director.

The case, which was concluded by the Tribunal earlier this month, concerned both Bal and his Managing Director at the time Rob Bhol concerning a detail in a client care letter that went out from his DBS Law firm in 2012.

In a statement to BizAsiaLive.com, Bal said yesterday that he will be taking on a “hands-on” approach with the Sikh Channel in his CEO role over the next twelve months and beyond, with clear aims to improve the channel’s infrastructure, content, and viewership across all demographics and markets.

“I’m looking forward to bringing improvements and innovations to the Sikh Channel over the coming months, in order to reach all segments of the Sikh community audience both the UK and abroad, as well as continue our important work at Sikh Channel Aid. This will be a challenge that will take the channel to new heights, and we are readily looking for any and all suggestions and support in helping us achieve our mission.”

Ofcom is yet to comment on the change.
