AIR to offers land, passage and security services to FM players

Prasar Bharati is expecting to make additional revenue by offering All India Radio’s (AIR) land, roads and security services. It is estimated that for using the AIR road and security, the FM companies would have to dish out another Rs 1 lakh per annum per city.

The much-touted figure is that of the tower fee that FM players have to pay to Prasar Bharati (Rs 25 lakh per annum per broadcaster for Delhi and Rs 13.36 lakh for Kolkata and Chennai each), thereby fetching the public broadcaster a neat sum of Rs 3.5 crore per annum from 16 radio stations a few days ago. Out of these 16 stations, 14 were in metros and two in non-metros.

From land itself, Prasar Bharati can get another Rs 1.4 crore per annum from FM radio stations in three metros of Delhi, Chennai and Kolkata. The Rs 1.4-crore amount is based on the fact that 600 sq metres of land will be made available to private FM operators in three metros at a price of Rs 8,000 per sq metre. From the two non-metros, Vishakapatnam and Indore, it will earn another Rs 16 lakh per annum.

Add to that the road/passage and security fee being charged to the private operators. At Rs 1 lakh per annum per place per broadcaster, the total revenue expected to be raised from 16 radio stations would come to Rs 16 lakh per annum.

Earlier in the year, Prasar Bharati had earned another Rs 14 crore for sharing its resources with Indira Gandhi Open University and Ispat Group’s Music Broadcasting for its first FM station.
