Major Subir Raha is no more

Major Subir Raha, former Chairperson ONGC and a fellow Territorial Army volunteer, passed away yesterday.

Maj Raha was suffering from lung cancer. He was 62. He is known for taking the ONGC to new heights as its Chief. Ironically though, he was refused extension as the head of ONGC after a run-in with certain elements of higher governance. An enthusiastic TA volunteer, he was on the forefront during the mobilisation of his unit for military duties.
