The seminar is being organized by Doordarshan Programme Production Personnel (ADP3).  This is the only association for the programme personnel of India which is being started off in 2009.

Several eminent personalities from different walks of life participated in the 1st day’s session and shared their views on the occasion.

Speaking on the inaugural occasion Mr. Kiran Karnik who was the Managing Director and CEO of Discovery Networks in India and ex President of NASSCOM remembered his association for Krishi Darshan Programmes in the initial years of Doordarshan.  He felt the urgency that policy makers should have clarity whether to allow Doordarshan to work as a commercial entity or remain as a Public service Broadcaster.  Speaking on the emerging trends of private satellite channels he said Doordarshan cannot and should not become a copy of other channels.  Referring to the debates in recent times whether we should have a public service broadcaster, he said that India do require a public service broadcaster on par with all other developed nations.

Shri Alok Mehta, Eminent Journalist and Editor of Out Look Magazine, speaking on the occasion felt that India’s view point could be understood by watching Doordarshan’s programmes. Referring the News of Doordarshan he said, so far there is no complain of any paid news in its news items which speaks of Doordarshan’s purity.  He further said that Doordarshan is the only channel which is airing programmes all over India in different languages and dialects.

Speaking on the seminar Shri H K Dua Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha) and senior-most journalists of the country said, in spite of several news channels beaming continuous news stories that do not carry real value of news content.  The satellite channels present and air only glossy picture of India.  But if you want to know what real India is, you should watch Doordarshan.  Shri Dua expressed that Doordarshan can be a best medium to educate people and eradicate illiteracy through its educational programmes.  He also emphasized Doordarshan should come forward to make more programmes on suppression of cast ism, communalism and superstitions to educate people across India.

Dr Narottam Puri a veteran sports personality and ENT Specialist speaking on the occasion, recollects his association with Doordarshan since 1959 during his young age.  Dr Puri said that there is no dearth of talent in Doordarshan and said some of the programmes being produced by Doordarshan are unique and rich in content carry great value even today. Referring the changing trends in recent times he felt that Doordarshan should adopt more articulate and creative approach in making programme that suits today’s taste of general public.

Director General Doordarshan Shri Tripurari Sharan, IAS speaking on the occasion said, he is putting best efforts to give a shape to Doordarshan in a best way in the contemporary competition.  He said Doordarshan is the only channel which posses the legacy of art and culture which is the essence of India.  Being a programme production man and served in FTII, Pune he has a thourough knowledge of programme personnel difficulties while making programmes.  He assured the association members present, that he will address all the persisting problems being neglected over the year and will address them on time bound manner.

Good news for those who were receiving increment from Febrauary to June in the pre-revised pay scale

The representatives of affliated unions who attended the fourth national anomaly committee meeting held on 05.01.2012, have reported that Government has accepted the demand of staff side for grant of additional increment to the employees who were receiving increment from Febrauary to June in the pre-revised pay scale prior to implementation of sixth pay commission report.

This issue was pending decision for many years and it’s a goods news for the employees who did not receive any increment during the year 2006 after fixation of pay based sixth pay commission implemention with effect from 1.1.2006, for the reason that they did not complete 6 months from the date of fixation of pay, as on 1.7.2006 as per Rule 9 of CCS Revised Pay Rules 2008.

However, an employee whose increment falls on 1.1.2006 will get the increment on 1.1.2006 in the pre revised pay scale and will get the next increment in the revised pay structure oh 1.7.2006 i.e. on expiry of six months.

Similarly those, whose next increment is between 1st July 2006 and 1st December, 2006 were also granted next increment in the revised pay structure on 1.7.2006.

The modality to be adopted to rectify this anomaly will be issued by Government in the form of an order in the near future.
