Assam Govt to set up new directorate for electronic and social media
The Directorate of Information and Public Relations will be reconstructed and set up into a separate directorate to deal with social and electronic media, which will function in sync with the changing trends of the modern day media.
Reportedly, the decision was taken to revolutionize the way DIPR functions and also help it meet the demands of the changing time.
The order for revamping the government's public relation wing has come after the directorate was rocked by series of scams involving government advertisements that were issued during the previous Congress government.
While the old directorate will be responsible for the print media, the new directorate would look after the electronic and social media.
