Vedanta Friday said it has appointed M K Sharma to the company's board as a non-executive independent director with effect from June 1, 2019.

Sharma has been instrumental in leading many significant projects throughout his career and the experience he brings in will be very critical in the company's growth, Vedanta Chairman Navin Agarwal said in a statement.

"Vedanta today announced the appointment of M K Sharma as a non-executive independent director with effect from June 1, 2019," the company said in a statement.
