NEW DELHI: The Government has emphasised that Prasar Bharati is 'not overshadowed by ideological apartheid or hate.'
Responding to a question, Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar said recently that Prasar Bharati carries out the public broadcasting services in a fair and objective manner and does not discriminate on the basis of ideologies.
He said in Parliament recently that Prasar Bharati has informed the Ministry that no journalist has been decommissioned or debarred by Doordarshan to curtail their independence.
Prasar Bharati has also said journalists are invited to various programmes according to the requirement of the subject, without any discrimination.
The Minister made it clear that Prasar Bharati was a statutory autonomous body set up by an Act of Parliament - the Prasar Bharati (Broadcasting Corporation of India) Act 1990 - and "it is not a state run broadcasting network."

NEW DELHI: In a controversial decision, the information and broadcasting (I&B) ministry has recommended that news content on DD News be replaced with broadcast of Commonwealth Games for the next 11 days starting Thursday after Prasar Bharati and Ten Sports failed to reach an agreement.
While the CWG telecast will be available to viewers, it will be at the expense of Doordarshan news. The news channel has a viewership of about 2.8 million people, according to Prasar Bharati.
The I&B ministry issued a showcase notice to Ten Sports on Tuesday evening for declining to share the feed with DD Sports. Confirming the move, I&B secretary Bimal Julka said, "We have recommended to Prasar Bharati to show the games on DD News. The board was of the opinion that it would be a loss of revenue if sports is telecast on DD National."

The early Eighties. It was the time of safari suits and Gold Spot, typewriters and turntables, when traffic jams were unheard of and children still played hopscotch in the colony park. But it was also a time of change.
The Maruti 800 car had been introduced in 1983, colour TV sets were selling like hot cakes, and discos had begun dotting the big cities. In 1982, Doordarshan, India's only television channel, had introduced the National Programme — a two-hour news-entertainment package for the entire nation, which covered 50 per cent of the population by 1984.
The stage was set for the country's first home-grown, long-running TV serial to make its appearance. Hum Log, which began on July 7, 1984 and ended after 156 episodes on December 17, 1985, was the pioneering ancestor of today's soaps.
