MUMBAI: Prasar Bharati chairman A Surya Prakash has launched an online application system for music auditions across all genres for the All India Radio (AIR).

The aspirants who wanted to apply and get themselves graded would now have a better experience in terms of accessibility and availability, the release added. The AIR conducts auditions in different genres of music, including classical, light, folk, tribal and western, and award suitable grades to them.

Meanwhile, the information and broadcasting ministry has reportedly suspended auction of slots on FreeDish, and would review the channel slot auction process of the air DTH platform. The ministry has asked the pubcaster to suspend e-auctioning of slots on FreeDish until further notice, sources told Mint.

Doordarshan holds e-auction once in a couple of months to award channel slots on FreeDish to private broadcasters. The platform carries 80 channels, including private channels such as Sony Pal, Star Utsav, Zee Anmol, Rishtey and news channels -- ABP News, Aaj Tak, and News 24.
