MINISTRY OF LAW CLEARS PRASAR BHARATI ORDINANCE


The Law Ministry has cleared the ordinance aimed at doing away with the complicated procedure to remove the top officials of the Prasar Bharati Corporation, which controls the public broadcasters – All India Radio and Doordarshan. The Law Ministry has given its go ahead to the I&B Ministry ordinance on Prasar Bharati. The ordinance provides for giving the appointing authority powers to remove top officials.    Fresh grounds of removal include indiscipline and ineffective functioning. This is the second change made in this law by the UPA government.  It had restricted the tenure of the Prasar Bharati chairman  to three years.
