The 6th ADASA National convention held at Hyderbad in a grand way on 27th & 28th November 2014. Dr. Lakshmikant Bajipai, President of BJP, Uttar Pradesh and Brig(R) Vam Hussain, Principal Advisor (P&A) Prasar Bharati attended the inaugural function. Dr.Lakshmikant Bajpai & Brig.(R)VM Hussain have started the convention by lighting the lamp. Sri G.K.Acharya in his presidential address appraised the problems faced by the administrative staff. The frustration & humiliation faced by administrative staff for not extending upgraded pay scale on par with other cadres is defeating the moral of administrative staff and he urged the Principal Adviser Brig.(R)VM Hussain to initiate steps to put an end to the wage discrimination at the earliest. Further he requested to take steps for implementation of CRC report. Shri V.Prasad, General Secretary in his address, while expressing sincere thanks to Prasar Bharati and both Directorates for initiating steps to complete the DPC’s and conducting Departmental Exams on time stressed the need to extended the up-grated pay scales to Administrative Staff. Dr.Lakshmikanth Bajpai in his address said that he was surprised to note how in an autonomous body like Prasar Bharati the working force is put to injustice and expressed solidarity for the demand of upgraded pay scales on par with others working in Prasar Bharati. Further, the very purpose of making AIR & DD autonomous is defeated as the governments are controlling the Prasar Bharati by arm twisting measures. He make it very clear that the demand of Prasar Bharati scales to Administrative Staff is a justified one and expressed his willingness to take up with Hon’ble MIB, if necessary. He hoped that the Principal Advised Brig.(R)VM Hussain will immediately initiate steps in that way.
