    NEW DELHI : Amazon India head Amit Agarwal has been appointed as the new chairman of the Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI).

    Agarwal assumes office at a time when the industry is on a growth trajectory with more than 500 million internet users in India. According to the recently launched Mary Meeker report, India accounts for 12% of the world's internet users, second only to China (21%).

    Dhruv Shringi, co-founder and CEO, Yatra is the vice chairman of IAMAI. Shringi takes over his new role from Deep Kalra, founder and Group CEO of MakeMyTrip.

    Satyan Gajwani, vice-chairman of Times Internet has been elected as the new treasurer of the association. Dr. Subho Ray continues to be the president of the association. The tenure of the new council is two years.

    The new team was announced at the 15th Annual General Meeting, held on Tuesday.

    Agarwal said, “This is an exciting phase in the growth story of the internet in India. As the internet revolution continues to be a socio-economic leveler, offering barrier-free access to Indian customers and small businesses in the remotest areas, I am excited that we are coming together as an industry to help truly harness the potential of the internet and emerging technologies such as AI in addressing India-specific problems at scale. I look forward to IAMAI continuing to offer a thoughtful platform for the industry to collaborate with the government, academia & think-tanks and other relevant stakeholders to leverage the digital ecosystem and contribute to India's growth."
