Help CVC indicts Prasar Bharati CEO for financial irregularities
Advertisement
#1
NEW DELHI: The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) has established five out of the seven allegations of financial and administrative irregularities by Prasar Bharati in a public interest litigation (PIL).

The CVC has also held Prasar Bharati CEO BS Lalli responsible in respect of four of the five allegations established by it.

After referring the matter to the Law Ministry through the Additional Solicitor General and the Attorney General, the Information and Broadcasting Ministry has sought the comments of Lalli on the CVC report.

The CVC had probed the matter on the directive of the Delhi High Court last year.

Informing the Parliament on the issue, Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni said in a written reply that the five allegations established by CVC relate to contracts for management of advertisement revenue arising from the telecast of cricket matches on Doordarshan during 2007; the non-telecast by Doordarshan of T-20 cricket World Cup matches held in South Africa in September 2007; engagement of legal entities to represent Prasar Bharati; purchase of radio broadcasting rights for 13 cricket series held during 2007-09; and hiring of transport and accommodation for the conduct of the Commonwealth Youth Games in Pune in 2008.

Soni mentioned that Lalli has been asked to submit his reply by 18 November.

The Ministry had also sought the view of the Law Ministry on the further course of action under Section 7 of the Prasar Bharati Act 1990.
