Kumar Mangalam Birla has rejoined the board of Vodafone Idea Limited (Vi) as an additional non-executive director. Vi’s board of directors approved his appointment, effective April 20, 2023. The board also accepted the resignation of non-executive director K K Maheshwari from the board.

Birla had stepped down from the post of non-executive chairman of the company in August 2021, two months after offering his entire stake to a public sector or a domestic finance company. Birla handed over the reign to group veteran Himanshu Kapania. Ravinder Takkar took charge as non-executive chairman replacing Kapania in August 2022.
