Government has no plan to privatise DD, AIR The government has no plan to privatise Doordarshan and All India Radio, the Minister for Information & Broadcasting, Ms Sushma Swaraj, informed the Rajya Sabha. In a written reply, Ms Swaraj said it was the endeavour of Prasar Bharati to improve the functioning of AIR and Doordarshan by using the latest technology and innovative techniques of programme production to attract listeners/viewers. Doordarshan had planned the establishment of four digital terrestrial transmitters in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Calcutta for an experimental service during 2001, which would be a cheaper version of direct-to-home (DTH), she said. She added that 37 licence agreements had been signed for FM radio service by private agencies and their operations could commence after grant of operational licence by the Wireless Planning and Coordination Wing (WPC).
