AIR Purnea Event



  
AIR, Paurnea has celebrated Radio Kisan Diwas to Organic Village Sahsoul of Purnea District on 15th February 2013. The farmers of Sahsoul were struggling hard for their survival in past days, because of their traditional Chemical Forming. But now days they are comparatively rich and happy with Scientific Forming i.e. use of Right Crop Cycle, Wormy Compost and elimination of Chemical Fertilizers and Pesticides. The farmers have also introduced Dairy in parallel to farming. The byproducts of dairy i.e. Gober and Gomutra were used in Wormy Compost and as a protective substance against harmful insects to crop. In this way farmers of Village Sahsoul are able to minimize the input cast of forming and started to earn more profit. Not only more profit, but the crop are also free of harmful chemicals and evaluate superior in market.
In the background of above happy ending story AIR Purnea has a vital role, because of continuous spreading the idea of Wormy Compost and Scientific Agriculture at regular intervals in its Kisan Vani programme. The purpose of Radio Kisan Diwas celebration at Organic Village Sahsoul is only to highlight and encourage the farmers of Sahsaoul and initiate some other formers too.

Prasar Bharati Act authorises AIR to broadcast paid commercials: HC - The Hindu

Prasar Bharati Act authorises AIR to broadcast paid commercials: HC - The Hindu
Courtesy : K. T. SANGAMESWARAN. The Hindu

The Prasar Bharati (Broadcasting Corporation of India) Act authorises broadcasting of paid commercials by All India Radio (AIR), the Madras High Court has said.
Dismissing in limine a public interest litigation petition seeking a declaration that broadcasting of paid commercials in AIR was illegal and unconstitutional, the First Bench comprising Acting Chief Justice R.K. Agrawal and Justice N. Paul Vasanthakumar said the statutory provisions made it abundantly clear that the Prasar Bharati Corporation, particularly its Board, was empowered to determine and levy fee and other service charges in respect of the advertisements. Hence, the petitioner’s contention that broadcasting of paid commercials was repugnant to the Act had no basis.  In fact, Section 12 (7) authorised broadcasting of paid commercials.
The Bench said broadcasting of any kind, including paid commercials, were covered under the Act.
The Prasar Bharati Corporation was formed with specific objectives with emphasis on upholding unity and integrity, nurturing the democratic and social values and projecting the varied cultural traditions of the country. The corporation was a body corporate having its headquarters in New Delhi and administered by the Prasar Bharati Board. Section 12 of the Act dealt with the corporation’s functions and powers.

PRASAR BHARATI NEWS RELEASE




PRASAR BHARATI
NEW DELHI
Dated: 28.3.2013
PRASAR BHARATI NEWS RELEASE 



Concerted efforts are being initiated at the Prasar Bharati, after a gap of several decades, to revitalise India's Public Broadcaster and make it a true People's Channel. Efforts are now being made to improve the situation, by taking steps such as setting up of the Recruitment Board, finalisation of Recruitment Regulations and filling up the vacant posts. 

  • With these efforts made during the last one year, proposals for setting up of Prasar Bharati Recruitment Board and finalisation of Recruitment Regulations have been pushed through and are in the final stage of approval. 
  • 3452 posts which were identified as critical and approved by Group of Ministers as far back as June, 2009 are now being filled up. 1150 posts have already been cleared and proposal for clearance of the balance posts is under active consideration of Department of Expenditure. Approval has also been accorded for recruitment of Group B and C posts through Staff Selection Commission pending setting up of Recruitment Board. Advertisement for 3023 posts in various categories (PEXs, TREXs, Production Assistants, Cameraman Grade II, Engineering Assistants, Technicians, Head clerks/ Assistants) have been released. This is the first major recruitment in Prasar Bharati in 15 years. 
  • To expedite Departmental Promotions Committees (DPCs), a High Power Committee has been constituted to scrutinise DPC proposals before these are referred to the Government so that the proposals are flawless and delay on account of cross references is avoided. Efforts are also being made to reduce stagnation to the extent possible by giving in-situ promotions, adhoc promotions as well as current duty charge of the higher posts. Wherever courts have given stay on holding DPCs, concerted efforts are being made to get the stay vacated in the interest of the employees. 

  • The vexed problems of casual artists, assignees and workers with temporary status have been attended to. Casual Assignees would be benefitted by an enabling provision of relaxation of age to the extent of approved service rendered in the relevant post. 
  • For regulating the system of appointments on compassionate ground to a dependent family member of an employee who dies in harness and leaves his family in financial distress, an SOP has been developed for bringing in objectivity and transparency. 
  •  On the financial front, concerted efforts have resulted in financial restructuring of Prasar Bharati. These include exempting it from income tax, waiver of interest on loan in perpetuity, capital loan and penal interest and converting the same into grant-in-aid, waiver of accumulated arrears of space segments and spectrum charges accrued upto 31.03.2011; Plan capital support henceforth to be through grant-in-aid without any loan component and providing of non-plan support for the next 5 years for meeting 100% expenses towards salary and related expenses. These incentives would benefit Prasar Bharati upto the tune of Rs. 12071 crores during the current fiscal. 
  • To improve the look, feel and content of both the media (Television and Radio) for attracting listeners and viewers, distinguished professionals have been engaged. Ministry of Information & Broadcasting has set up an Expert Committee in Prasar Bharati (Sam Pitroda Committee) which will suggest the restructuring of Prasar Bharati.
