RSTV refutes allegations on its operations being under scanner

Rajya Sabha TV has issued a statement refuting the allegations being circulated in media. It says, “Some news report had mentioned that RSTV has spent Rs 1700 crore in four years. It is categorically stated that the total expenditure was only Rs 146.7 crore in the said four years, 2010-2014, inclusive of salaries, rentals, capital cost and operational expenses. The figure of Rs 1700 crore is only a figment of imagination.”

The statement further explains, “As for the CAG report, it may be noted that CAG has not publish9ed or tabled any report against RSTV. During the annual audit done by the Director General of Audit (Central Expenditure) i.e DGACE for Rajya Sabha Secretariat, including RSTV, some draft observations were made. These draft observations have been distorted, presented with factual inaccuracies and falsely portrayed. Nevertheless these observations have been satisfactorily answered to by RSTV and settled by DGACE last year itself.”

“RSTV also places on record that the Ministry of Finance has never sent any note expressing displeasure regarding RSTV. Also the budget of RSTV was not curtailed under austerity measures and the channel has always operated within its sanctioned budget.
