SAB yet to take a decision on moving court against DD’s decision

Sri Adhikari Brothers TV Network is still undecided whether to move court against Doordarshan’s decision rejecting its Rs 18 crore bid for the 8 to 10 pm time slot on DD Metro. Along with SAB, the other two bids rejected by DD last week were those of Pritish Nandy Communications (Rs 1 crore for 8-9 p.m. slot) and Prachar Communications (Rs. 16 crores for 7-11 p.m. slot).

A senior DD official clarified that DD reserved all the right to reject any bid, specially when all the bids were “very low compared to last year’s Rs. 121 crores.”

Last Thursday when DD opened the pre-qualification bids for the DD metro slots for the second time, it dawned on them that big names had kept away again. One of the concerns of the big media companies was that original programming had to be supplied to DD, coupled with other stringent programming restrictions.
