All India Radio Kolkata fires 100 casual RJs aged above 35 years

All India Radio (AIR) has fired around 100 of its casual RJs working with the Kolkata stations of FM Rainbow and FM Gold who are above the age of 35 years, as per media reports.

The AIR Director General had issued a communiqué last year placing an age bar on RJs/ presenters of FM Rainbow and FM Gold, following which AIR has been doing away with casual RJs since December 2013. AIR had issued another circular on this issue in March 2014.

Meanwhile, sacking of the RJs is being opposed by the AIR Broadcasters’ Welfare Association, Kolkata, who have appealed to the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) after failing to receive a response from the AIR authorities regarding reconsidering the decision to fire the RJs.
