AIR, DD executives' submission to court

Staff Reporter

Have been assigned other works making them redundant

NEW DELHI: The Programme Staff Welfare Association of All India Radio (AIR) and Doordarshan has informed the Delhi High Court that the programme executives appointed for specialised disciplines have been assigned other works, virtually making them redundant.

The Association made this submission in reply to an appeal filed by Prasar Bharti in the High Court against a Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) judgment allowing a plea that Prasar Bharti allot to the programme executives only those works that are compatible with their training and expertise.

In the appeal, Prasar Bharti had taken the plea that it had the authority to assign any work to any programme executive irrespective of their expertise and training.

The assigning of works to programme executives of disciplines for which they were not appointed was also against the interests of AIR and Doordarshan, the reply contended.

Quoting a Supreme Court judgment of a similar nature in which AIR and Doordarshan were respondents, the Association said the Court had held that an officer should be allocated work for which he has been selected and not be transferred to a place where the particular programme/language does not exist.

After the judgment, the respondents had changed the discipline of the petitioner (a programme executive), but Prasar Bharti had once again reverted to the old illegal practice and was allotting works to programme executives in violation of the ruling.

The Association urged the Court to direct Prasar Bharti to assign to programme executives works of only those disciplines for which they had been appointed.
