The chickens may be finally coming home to roost for sundry officials in pubcaster Prasar Bharati. I&B minister Sushma Swaraj has informed Parliament that her ministry has prepared a list of tainted officials in conjunction with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

The last few months have seen a number of questions being raised as to how deals are sanctioned by the Prasar Bharati. It was in January that the CBI raided the offices and residences of three senior officials of Prasar Bharati who allegedly accepted bribes to clear programmes for the Doordarshan.

Swaraj reportedly told the Lok Sabha (Lower House of Parlaiament) last week that four of the five cases the CBI had registered had been received by the ministry.

She has been quoted by The Times of India newspaper as saying: "The government has accepted the recommendations of the CBI in these cases and the same shall be forwarded to the central vigilanmce commission."

Reports also state that the CBI had looked into 23 cases of corruption involving Group 'A' officers. The system of purchasing and procuring programmes had been reviewed and streamlined to make the system more transparent she said.
