Govt told to get Mumbai DD studio up & running

The public Accounts Committee of Parliament has directed the Information and Broadcasting ministry to expedite the completion of an additional studio for Doordarshan in Mumbai, even as it criticised the delay in commissioning the project.

The PAC (2000-2001) report presented to the Lok Sabha on Monday also directed the ministry to keep it posted on the status of the project. Regretting the nine year delay in the project which was scheduled to be completed by 1991, the PAC said "what is further disquieting is that the ministry failed to intimate to the committee the precise date by which the project would be commissioned."

The committee’s earlier report found that Doordarshan suffered a loss of about Rs 158.25 lakh, as Shah Construction had failed to build the studio, though entrusted with the task as early as in 1989 at a cost of Rs 4.43 crore.
