Consultative Committee of I&B meets to discussPublic Broadcasting System

Zakir hussein,, The Minister of Information & Broadcasting Smt. Ambika Soni chaired the 2nd meeting of the Consultative Committee for the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting. Smt. Ambika Soni emphasized that the Public Service Broadcasting serves the vital purpose of informing, educating and entertaining large sections of the Indian population and hence its important to ensure harmonious and efficient functioning of the public service broadcaster – Prasar Bharati, in India. The Minister added that while Ministry of Information & Broadcasting is giving grant-in-aid to Prasar Bharati, it does not in any manner interfere or influence in the programming or functioning of Prasar Bharati. The Minister reiterated that it is thus obligatory on part of Prasar Bharati to ensure transparency in its dealings, particularly in evaluation committees for selection of programmes. Some of the issues facing Prasar Bharati would be placed before the Groupof Ministers which has been constituted recently for the purpose.

Providing a holistic picture of Prasar Bharati to the Consultative Committee members, a detailed presentation on Doordarshan and All India Radio’s reach, genres of programmes as also functional constraints like shortage of manpower and requirement of assured funding was made for the benefit of the Members.

Members, cutting across the party lines, contributed whole heartedly to discussions on various issues like need for parity of salary structure among different categories of Prasar Bharati employees, lack of visibility of Urdu Channels, need to ensure proper reach of Doordarshan’s regional channels, etc. Members also suggested that keeping in mind the immense value of All India Radio and Doordarshan Archives, people should be allowed to make full use of these archives for research purposes. It was also suggested that Prasar Bharati should ensure that reservations for SC/ST/OBC are fully implemented.

The Members who attended the meeting today included Minister of State for Information & Broadcasting Sh. C.M.Jatua, Dr. Anup Kumar Saha, Sh. Ramashankar Rajbhar, Sh. Shatrughan Sinha, Sh. Tapas Paul, Sh. Mohammed Adeed, Sh. Bharatkumar Raut, Sh. M.P.Achuthan, and Km. Saroj Pandey.

I made a blogger account a few months ago, and i added some pictures to my sidebar and don't know how to remove them. I used the image hosting site 'Photobucket' to put the pictures on my blog, and put my login information there nd they did it for me. I don't like how one of the pictures look and I really want to remove/delete it. Help? Thanks..

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Kudos

Hi, - stumbled upon your internet page due to pure luck while looking around the net this evening, and pleased that i did! I like the style and design and different shades, but I should point out that I'm having difficulty when it loads. I'm using Flock 2 web browser for mac, and the menu block wouldn't lineup completely. i am convinced used the same design on a client's online site, but the menu seems Ok on mine. I suspect the problem is with my browser and maybe today's the day to change!

Hi everyone, - spotted your current web page by pure luck while wandering around the internet this afternoon, and pleased that I did! I like the style and design and different shades, but I have to mention that I'm having problems when it loads. I'm using SeaMonkey 2 internet browser for mac, and the menu doesn't align completely. i am convinced I have made use of the same layout on a customer's internet site, but the menu seems Ok on mine. I suspect the error is at this end and I'm assuming it's time to upgrade!

Thanks I got your web link. Does anyone by chance have a backup mirror internet site or web link to another source? The link surely does not seem to work for me.
