No anomaly in DD news correspondents' designations, says Irani

NEW DELHI: The Government has said that there is no anomaly in the designations of news correspondents in Doordarshan. Information and broadcasting minister Smriti Zubin Irani has told the Parliament that the recruitment rules of 24 March 2014 had said that the posts in the TV news correspondents cadre are designated as TV news correspondent (TVNC), special news correspondent, and principal correspondent.

The process of framing of the Rules for the posts of TV news correspondent (TVNC), TV assistant news correspondent (TVANC) & TV assistant news editor (TVANE) was initiated in 1997 but due to various procedural requirements/inter-ministerial consultation/approvals involved, could be processed and finalized only after creation of posts in promotional hierarchy in TVNC cadre on 27 August 2010.

Finally after all inter-ministerial consultations/approvals and the creation of three posts in promotional hierarchy in TV News Correspondent (TVNC), the Recruitment Rules for these employees have been notified on 24 March, 2014, which, inter-alia, provide for promotion to the higher grades.

Promotion of officers in each cadre is governed by their Recruitment Rules providing eligibility conditions for promotion and designation. Accordingly, the designations of officers change consequent upon such promotion.

In reply to another question, the minister of state Rajyavardhan Rathore said officials and news professionals from various categories are nominated for conferences and training programmes depending on the nature of such events and suitability/availability of such personnel. These nominations in reference to training and conference are made with the approval of the competent authority, depending on the nature of event and based on the recommendation of Doordarshan News.

Staff from various categories, including TVNCs/TVANCs is sent abroad for VVIP/ Coverages as per suitability/ availability of personnel and requirement of organization.

Suitability and competence as assessed by Competent Authority in Doordarshan News and approved in Prasar Bharati Secretariat is the criteria of selection of persons for a particular task.
