FTV told to comply with cable code

Information and Broadcasting Minister Sushma Swaraj informed the Rajya Sabha that the government has asked the Paris-based FTV to adhere to the cable programme code following complaints raised by the Parliamentary Consultative Committee. Swaraj told the House in a written reply that her ministry had taken up the matter with the FTV authorities who had assured to adhere to the code. She said that in case of any contravention of the code, officers would take action under the Act.

The minister also informed the House that Rs 182.13 crore was owed by private agencies to Doordarshan as on July 31, 2001. Legal action to realise the dues had been initiated against the majority of them and in some instances the CBI had filed cases.

As far as megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s ABCL is concerned, she said the company still owed Rs 2.82 crore but was adhering to its installment payments. The minister informed the House that Prasar Bharati had given the go-ahead to Doordarshan to rent out its uplink facilities to outside agencies.

The minister said the Australian company, Nine Network, had been allotted the 1900-2100 hrs slots on DD-Metro channel for a one-year period.
