Obituary - MC Aggarwal, fromer E-in-Chief AIR passed away



Shri M. C. Aggarwal, former Engineer in Chief All India Radio passed away today, on 26.08.2016. Shri Aggarwal was not keeping well for quite some time.

Shri Aggarwal was a 1972 batch IB(E)S Officer, graduated from BITS, Pillani. Shri Aggarwal had been actively involved in the planning and design of MW, SW & FM transmitting systems of All India Radio for about 25 years. Shri Aggarwal had also made valuable contribution in Doordarshan by conceptualizing and implementing 30 DTH channels of Doordarshan in a time-bound manner, which was later extended to 50 channels under his supervision and guidance. Shri Aggarwal also worked as the Head of the Planning & Development Unit of All India Radio, which is responsible for implementing the grand plan for digitalization of All India Radio in India, before getting elevated to the post of Engineer-in-Chief. He is remembered as an utmost honest and upright officer in AIR fraternity.

PB Parivar condoles the demise of Shri MC Aggarwal and prays to the almighty for the peace of departed soul.

Fayyaz Sheheryar, Director Genearal All India Radio condoled the demise of Shri MC Aggarwal and wrote -
"The death of Mr M C Aggarwal comes to me like a thunderbolt. V have worked together in Doordarshan Headquarters where I found in him a self-respecting, intrepid broadcast engineer of high calibre. When he & I were peers albeit in 2 different streams, We had a despot on our head suffering from incurable cynicism.
In an uncongenial atmosphere marked by asphyxiation, MCA spoke when most of his colleagues chose silence, he advocated changing technology for fast changing India when the then masters understood just the revenue generation at the expense of much cherished Public Service Broadcasting. A time came when he was axed & removed from DD. He stood by what he said & the broadcaster did adopt what he was victimised for but only when Aggarwal Sahib was disabled by neurological breakdown. And today, he embraces his creator after spending a moribund existence of years.
GOD BLESS HIS SOUL."
