It is known to all our members that Prasar Bharati Secretariat has issued an order on 08.09.2011 stating that no employees associations in AIR & Doordarshan is recognized and should not be extended any kind of preferential treatment and should be applied absolutely without distinction and no departure or interference should be allowed in its implementation. Copy of any circular issued by office will be sent to President or General Secretary of recognized association only. Even after declaration of Associations in AIR & DD as unrecognized by Prasar Bharati Secretariat, DG:AIR has sent a copy of Order to the President of ARTEE and GS of ADTEA see their Order No. 14/22/2011.SIV(B), dated 11.11.2011 on grant of MACP to Assistant Engineers. It gives impression that they don't want to follow the orders of PB Secretariat. But they have not followed the same rule in the case of Promotion Orders of AOs issued on 16.11.2011 where in it was not marked to ADASA. DG:AIR officials have shown their special regards towards ARTEE, ADTEA keeping aside the orders of Prasar Bharati Secretariat. And it gives impression that DG:AIR has recognized these two associations and they don’t want to strain their “relation” with ARTEE & ADTEA.
