Departmental Promotion Committees being constituted in Prasar Bharati

NEW DELHI: The Government today admitted in Parliament that Departmental Promotion Committees (DPCs) in Prasar Bharati could not be constituted in time due to non-acceptance of proposals for promotion in respect of employees by Union Public Service Commission on account of amendment to Prasar Bharati (Broadcasting Corporation of India) Act.

Noting that DPCs were not constituted in some cases due to litigation, Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Rajyavardhan Rathore said the matter had now been resolved and Prasar Bharati was conducting the work of constituting the DPCs.

He said in reply to a question that Prasar Bharati had informed that Reservation Rosters are being maintained in respect of all cadres in All India Radio and Doordarshan according to the guidelines of the Department of Personnel and Training issued from time to time.

Filling up the vacant posts was an ongoing process, he added. Vacancies including backlog vacancies, if any are filled from the eligible persons as per the guidelines issued in this regard.
