Help Prasar Bharati feels revenue pressure
#1
Advertisement
India's pubcaster is under financial stress. Prasar Bharati has posted a revenue of Rs 4.66 billion for the six-month period ended September, while expenditure stands at Rs 12.05 billion.

Prasar Bharati chief executive officer B S Lalli, however, expects the revenue to see a jump over the previous fiscal.

"The figure appears low because several parties which owe money to the pubcaster generally clear their dues only by the end of March. In fact, the Directorates of both Doordarshan and All India Radio had been asked to work towards crossing the revenue figures of last fiscal," Lalli tells Indiantelevision.com.

Prasar Bharati had posted a revenue of Rs 11.76 billion for the fiscal ended March 2010 while expenditure stood at Rs 29.49 billion.

The pubcaster's revenue in 2008-09 was Rs 10.97 billion while expenditure touched Rs 25.19 billion. In 2007-08, the expenditure was Rs 20.58 billion as against the revenue of Rs 10.36 billion.

Prasar Bharati is finding it difficult to up its turnover as it faces stiff competition from private satellite television channels and FM radio broadcasters.

Expenditure, on the other hand, has shot up significantly in the last few years, mainly due to the implementation of the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission.
