SHRI R. SHUNMUGASUNDARAM (TAMIL NADU): Mr. Deputy Chairman, Sir, thank you very much for permitting me to air my views on the working of the I & B Ministry. Different views have been aired on the working of the Information and Broadcasting Ministry.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Please be brief.

SHRI R. SHUNMUGASUNDARAM: Sir, I will be very brief. I am not known to make a long speech.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Yes, I know that.

SHRI R. SHUNMUGASUNDARAM: Sir, the Doordarshan, as was pointed out by many of my friends, has got far and wide reach in this country. It has the low power transmitters all over the country and, therefore, the reach is more. But what is unfortunate is that the quality of telecast by the Doordarshan is not up to the level of the private telecasters. I would request the hon. Minister to go digital, as far as Doordarshan is concerned. A lot of time is wasted. Sometimes, when a change-over of Kendras takes place, we have seen that the television is going blank. (Contd. by 3R/VK)

VK-GS/3R/5.15

SHRI R. SHUNMUGASUNDARAM (CONTD): Sometimes, the National Kendra is changed to the Regional Kendra or the Regional Kendra is changed to the National Kendra. Some letters appear and nothing happens. On the contrary, when we see some of the very popular television channels, like the Sun TV, every ten seconds they show some advertisements and make money out of it. Such things should be encouraged and it should be commercialised. At least, some sort of entertainment must go on, instead of going just blank.

Sir, there is also no proper management of the Doordarshan. It is not managed professionally. The DD News Channel, which was started with a lot of hope, has become a boring channel altogether when compared with other channels. At least, presentation of news by the DD News Channel should be comparable with other news channels, if not entertainment. I would request the hon. Minister to advise the Doordarshan to start an exclusive music channel fully devoted to Indian classical light music in all languages. Further, there should be an exclusive channel for information on travel and tourism. Travel and tourism is one particular area which attracts a lot of viewership. So, there should be an exclusive DD Travel channel.

Sir, some Doordarshan Kendras have been started recently. I would like to talk about one Kendra which was started in Madurai. It was started with a huge investment. Shri Natchiappan also spoke about the Madurai Studio. Though it was started recently, it has not contributed much. We expect a lot of contribution from the Madurai Kendra. The Madurai Kendra does not cover local news and cultural events in Tamil. My request is some coverage must be given to the local Saurashtra language which is spoken by a group of people in Madurai. In this way, this particular group should be given some encouragement. Thank you. (Ends)

SHRI MANOJ BHATTACHARYA (WEST BENGAL): Sir, I will make a very limited intervention. I personally feel that there is no use of expressing repentance on the cultural degradation that is taking place in this country over a period of time; because, to my mind, Sir, culture is integrated with the economic policies that are pursued by the country. Now we have resorted to the economic policy, what we term as the neo-liberal economic policy where cultural integration is taking place all over the world and the Western culture is being dumped upon us. This is quite natural. Unless you are prepared to fight against that economic policies, you cannot isolately fight against the cultural decadence. I fully agree with the hon. Members who have mentioned about the cultural decadence that is taking place very vigorously in this country of ours. But, I am sorry to say that it cannot be isolately taken up for correction. The correction has to be made right from the economic policy itself. However, it is a subject where I can dwell for hours, but the time is not in my favour and I am not going to dwell for long.

I have assured that I will be making some very specific remarks or intervention particularly in regard to the All India Radio; because, Sir, the majority of our people in this country, even today, though television sets have been sold in numbers and the Government has also ensured that prices of television sets go down by adjusting the taxes, excise duty, etc, still then, a majority of the people in the rural India, particularly, who live in Bharat, who do not live in India, mostly hear the radio, All India Radio. It has been pointed out by various sources that Prasar Bharati--hon. Minister may kindly take a note of it--is planning to shift the regional languages like Bengali, Assamese, etc., etc.,--I do not quote all the languages over here--out of the headquarters of the national capital to the respective headquarters. The situation is such that the infrastructure in the State capitals is not there to accommodate these languages, the way they are done from the national headquarters. That infrastructure does not exist. The regional languages news services division has a long and rich history. (Contd. by kls/3w)

KLS/3W/5.35

SHRI MANOJ BHATTACHARYA (CONTD.): Sir, personally, I remember, when very eminent newsreaders were there. They were speaking from Delhi. Very promptly their communication was made to the entire nation. But, over a period of time, these regional languages have been neglected by the All India Radio, in particular. And, now, I am hearing, that these have been shifted to the State capitals. I want to know whether the hon. Minister would take the corrective action and these are put in place in Delhi, and proper care is taken for those regional languages, news-reading in particular. The people in the rural areas, as I have told you, solely rely on the radio, and especially communicated through the respective languages. News broadcast from the national capital always has a special place of importance in regard to credibility, authenticity as well as promptness. It will be a gross injustice to shift the regional languages units from New Delhi or the national capital. The people in the respective States do not want to share the burden while the staff members and the casual newsreaders show a kind of unparallel passion to serve it.

Sir, I must say that there are a number of casual newsreaders in the regional languages. Even though this is a perennial job, there are a number of casual newsreaders there. My colleague, Shrimati Brinda Karat has pointed out about the problems of the employees of the Prasar Bharati or Doordarshan or in the All India Radio. I will particularly say that there are a number of casual news-readers particularly in the All India Radio. Their last pay revision took place in 1997. For over a period of these nine years, there has been no revision. Whatever they are getting today, that is a very paltry sum. Moreover, the working hours have been increased and shifts have been merged. So, the newsreaders are being forced to do extra work with less remuneration. So, I would like the hon. Minister to look into this very important issue of news-readers, particularly the casual news-readers, because you are not recruiting the regular news-readers, you are going by the casual news-readers, particularly in the regional languages. I want to know whether the hon. Minister would kindly ensure that justice is done to these newsreaders.

Sir, my next point is about professionalism of these newsreaders. It cannot be, unless proper orientation training is given to them. In these casual newsreaders, there are many newcomers. They have to read the news, and they have to rely on the Teleprompters. On these Teleprompters one has to get to get the proper training to read the news. But, unfortunately, the mechanism, perhaps, is not in place so that they can really deliver the responsibility bestowed on them. (Time-bell) I will just conclude. What I was talking about is, there is a disparity among the English News Readers, Hindi News Readers and the Regional Languages News Readers. So, Sir, I urge upon the hon. Minister to see to it and take the corrective actions. The number of news-bulletins have increased manifold. Additional recording features such as comments from Press, spotlight, NOP, live interaction with the correspondents and so on have made the responsibility very tough for the newsreaders. I have talked about technological upgradation and use of Teleprompters and one has to be acquainted with that. The training, the proper training, proper environment, conducive environment has to be made for that. Sir, I am told that the Prasar Bharti has surprisingly withdrawn the transport facility to the casual newsreaders. Earlier there were transport facilities given to them and in odd hours they used to be carried from their residences and put back to their residences. All of a sudden I hear that there is a change in the Prasar Bharti activities and they have stopped this transporting the casual newsreaders. I would like to know whether the hon. Minister would assure this House that proper justice will be done to the newsreaders and the staff of the regional languages. This is a very important matter where the hon. Minister has to intervene. Another point which I would just like to mention is only a tangential mention because I cannot go into details. Sir, in this country of ours TRP is done by some broadcasters only, by the sister organisations of those broadcasters, particularly the multinational broadcasters. The TRP is being done by these broadcasters and this TRP is very much tilted only to promote them. They only put the numbers for particular channel, what is of their origin, they will put 100 and for Doordarshan they will be putting 10. So, TRP is going down for Doordarshan. These channels are making immense profit by doing this TRP manipulation. I would like to know whether the hon. Minister will assure that the TRP will be done by an independent organisation as there is some ORG, Operation Research Group or other organisations like this of Indian origin. They should do the TRP.

(Contd by 3X)

SSS/AKG/3X/5.40

SHRI MANOJ BHATTACHARYA (CONTD.): The Government should take up the responsibility of doing the TRP and decide about the channels and it should propagate it to the people so that the TRP manipulation is not done.

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Please conclude.

SHRI MANOJ BHATTACHARYA: Sir, I am not in favour of regimented culture. At the same time, I am also not in favour of losing everything or making everything wide open for the profit of some of the channels. In this world today, Sir, culture is also being termed as a commodity and the commodity is selling. It requires a hard-hitting campaign and at the same time, the very objective of selling is making super profit. Now, the channels that are making super profit must be controlled and the Government must see to it that unnecessarily our value-systems are not trampled with. With these few words, I conclude and thank you very much. (Ends)

SHRI SHANTARAM LAXMAN NAIK (GOA): Mr. Vice-Chairman, Sir, at the outset, I would like to refer to the attack, I would say, a merciless attack made by certain Members against Doordarshan. These Members and others forget about the entire revolution brought about by Doordarshan in this country. There is no parallel in the history of the world where such a network has been created in the nook and corner of the country. Whether it is in America or USSR or anywhere in the world, such a network has never been established. This is a record in the history of the world and in the media. So, let us no forget this aspect.

Secondly, I would like to accept that even when I was a college student, Smt. Jaya Bachchan was the idol for me. I was her fan right from the age of 13-14 years. I have seen almost 90 per cent, or, perhaps, 95 per cent of her films. But, you must not forget that those who lived in jhopries in this country, who have never gone to any cinema theatre, these people in small, small places have seen on Doordarshan Guddi, Koshish, Shor and other movies. They have seen new movies also. They never go to theatres. Therefore, you should never forget what Doordarshan has done to you as actors and actresses. I can understand, there are weaknesses. I am also going to point out certain weaknesses in Doordarshan. But, nevertheless, we should never forget this historical aspect. What has been referred to... (Interruptions)...

SHRI SHATRUGHAN SINHA: Sir, we are not making fun of Doordarshan. We do not deny the fact that this is the most potent Institution we have today. As far as taking us all over the country is concerned, Doordarshan has played a number one role, but what we are talking about is how to make it more believable, and develop more credibility in it. This is what we are talking about. Thank you, Sir.

SHRI SHANTARAM LAXMAN NAIK: Now, we have talked about the International Film Festival. This is one of the important tasks before your Ministry, Sir. It is only two years old. In 2004, Shri Ravi Shankarji, you had taken the initiative. There is no doubt about it. In 2004, your Government there made a mess of this International Film Festival. They created illegal constructions throughout the Panaji city. And, people were damn against such an International event, so much so, they even said, "You please postpone it." The people of Goa had to say... (Interruptions)... I am telling you.

SHRI RAVI SHANKAR PRASAD: I must say that I had gone there. ...(Interruptions)... It will not be fair. ...(Interruptions)... The Festival had become a craze. ...(Interruptions)...

SHRI SHANTARAM LAXMAN NAIK: And, subsequently, whatever works you did illegally there, we faced the consequences in 2005. And, when our Government came in 2005, the Film Festival was conducted very smoothly and without any controversy. Now, Sir, there is a task before you. ...(Interruptions)... A task is there before you to conduct all International Film Festivals... (Interruptions)...

SHRIMATI JAYA BACHCHAN: Sir, I would not like to ...(Interruptions)...

SHRI V. NARAYANASAMY: Madam, let him finish first. ...(Interruptions)...

SHRIMATI JAYA BACHCHAN: I am talking about my involvement in the Film Festival, Sir. ...(Interruptions)...

SHRI V. NARAYANASAMY: Madam, let him finish first, then, if you want to speak... (Interruptions)...

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN : He has yielded, that is why, she is speaking.
