NEW DELHI: Celebrating its 20-year anniversary, Prasar Bharati is conducting jingle and short film competitions for current and former employees. People have to send their nominations by 10 November.

This year is also important as Prasar Bharati has for the first time shifted to its own premises, adjoining Doordarshan in Copernicus Marg in New Delhi. Until now, it had been a tenant in the PTI Building on Sansad Marg (Parliament Street), just opposite Parliament House Annexe.

A statutory autonomous body established under the Prasar Bharati Act 1990, it came into existence on 23 November 1997.

Prasar Bharati had been conceived as a trust known as Akash Bharati in the report prepared by a committee headed by the late renowned mediaperson B G Verghese in 1978 focused on autonomy for broadcasting in India.

After Prasar Bharati came into formation, both All India Radio and Doordarshan came under its ambit. These public service broadcasters had till then functioned as media units under the Ministry of I&B.
