DD to assess its requirements of commissioned programmes in advance

According to the Prasar Bharati guidelines for commissioning of programmes which were issued on Tuesday, Doordarshan (DD) will be required to assess its requirements of commissioned programmes in the last quarter of the financial year for the ensuing year. Based on the list of such commissioned programmes, the Central Commissioning Unit (CCU) will consolidate the annual budget requirements and forward it to the finance wing. Subsequently, the finance wing will earmark the available budget to different channels and kendras.

The guidelines state that certain genres may be excluded for commissioning, as they would be available in the sponsored category. These genres include daily soaps, sit-coms, mythological, mega-serials etc. Also, the guidelines say that the budget allocated for commissioning will be utilised by inviting eminent producers and directors including award winning producers and directors.

Part of the commissioning budget will be identified and allocated for the promotion of new talent, for assigning programmes to young graduates from various film/TV institutes.

The proposals short-listed by the evaluation committee shall be put up to a costing committee for critical evaluation of the budget requirements of the proposal. The decision taken by the costing committee shall be final and its decision will be communicated to the producer within five working days of the meeting.

The guidelines have taken into account the new media too. ‘‘All rights including new media and any rights that may be available in future will rest with Doordarshan.”
