DIRECTORATE OF FIELD PUBLICITY
In pursuance of the mandate of the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting, Directorate of Field Publicity (DFP) undertakes field programmes
to generate awareness among the people about government’s policies/programmes/schemes. Effective implementation of government’s
developmental and welfare initiatives hinges on awareness among the intended beneficiaries about their entitlements under various
programmes/schemes. DFP accordingly seeks to create informed sections of the people to enable their voluntary and enthusiastic participation in implementation of such programmes/schemes. DFP’s awareness generation efforts are based on ‘inter-personal communication’.
DFP functions through interactive sessions with local opinion leaders and targeted beneficiaries, group discussions, door-to-door visits,
public meetings, etc. These efforts are complemented by use of traditional and folk media and other conventional and non-conventional
methods. In this process, DFP gets support from other Central and state departments/agencies. DFP’s field functionaries also collect
feedback on implementation of government’s programmes/schemes for the benefit of implementing agencies.
Objectives of the Directorate

India. It brings its staff face to face with the people to interact with them about the plans and schemes formulated for their
benefit
•

INDIAN INSTITUTE OF MASS COMMUNICATION
The main objective of Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) is to organise training and research in the use and development of
the media and mass communication, with special reference to the requirements of socio-economic growth in the country. The Institute is
financed by the Government of India, through the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, in the form of net annual grant-in-aid.
The post-graduate diploma courses of IIMC are open for the general public and candidates are selected through written test/interviews. In addition, the Institute conducts two courses in Development Journalism in each academic year for working journalists and
information officers from developing countries, in collaboration with the Ministry of External Affairs. Foundation/ orientation/ in-service
training programmes for officers of the Indian Information Service (IIS), both Group ‘A’ and Group ‘B’, are also conducted. A number of
other short-term courses are also arranged for officers of different Departments/Organizations of the Government of India, State Governments and international organizations. The Institute conducts research projects on various mass media related issues. Most of these studies
are sponsored. It also publishes books and other publicatons on journalism/mass communication, from time to time.
It is felt that the primary requirement in the present situation would be to up-grade the one year PG Diploma Courses currently
offered by the Institute to 2 year Advanced PG Diploma courses and to have these declared equivalent to MA Degree courses. Strengthening
of the Department of Communication Research would also be an imperative need in the up-gradation of the present IIMC to the level of
an Institute of national importance. Advanced courses and Doctoral programmes can be commenced, after bringing an Act of Parliament
to declare the IIMC an Institute of national importance.
Plan Activities:
Keeping in view the above aspects, Ministry of Information and Broadcasting approved the Plan Scheme “Upgradation of IIMC to
International Standards” in the 11th Five Year Plan for a total outlay of ` 62.00 crore with budget support of ` 51.50 crore. This is a
continuing Scheme in XII Five Year Plan with government support of ` 43 crore. A new Plan Scheme “Opening of New Regional Centres
of IIMC” has been approved in the 12th Five Year Plan, with a total Plan outlay of ` 94.20 crore and a net budgetary support of ` 90.00

Executive Summary
(D) Setting up a Centre of Excellence for Animation, Gaming and VFX Sector:
In the global entertainment space, animation and gaming has emerged as one of the successful areas of growth and success. While it is
acknowledged in the industry that there is tremendous potential for growth in this sector, adequate manpower to fuel this growth is key to
the future success of this industry. The demand for trained manpower for animation and gaming is far in excess of the current supply and
non-availability of talent has become a key challenge for Indian companies. This area therefore needs to be addressed on priority particularly in view of the competition faced from other Asian markets.
It is therefore proposed to set up a Centre for Excellence in Animation and Gaming and VFX under the Ministry of Information and
Broadcasting. A detailed project report for the same has been finalized and accorded 12th Plan Outlay. Government of Punjab has allotted
12 acres of land for the centre in Mohali, Punjab free of cost.
The total outlay proposed for setting up of the Centre for Excellence in Animation and Gaming in the forthcoming Plan period is
` 57 crores. The project is purposed to be run on Public Private partnership mode.

MAIN SECRETARIAT’S BROADCASTING WING SCHEMES
A) Supporting Community Radio Movement
Communication is central to the success of development and democracy. Community Radio (CR) is a crucial communication tool, particularly
in communities where most people can neither read nor write. It is also an extraordinary and invisible medium to give voice to the
voiceless.
Ministry has tapped the hidden potential of CR as an ideal tool for bringing positive social change and community empowerment.
CR stations are essentially low power radio stations, meant to be set up and operated by local communities. A CR station is rooted in the
local community, which gives it a distinct advantage to focus on development goals for health, nutrition, education etc.
25
Executive Summary
In the last four years a paradigm shift has been brought about in the approach of the Ministry towards such stations. The approach
is now that of a facilitator rather than that of a mere licensor/regulator. This important shift has catalyzed the growth of CR in India leading
to 170 CR stations operating in various parts of India. With more than 300 stations in the pipeline, the stage is set for a silent revolution.
Initiatives like simplification of the application methodology, improved transparency in processing of applications, quickening the
pace of approvals, enhanced awareness, introduction of Plan Scheme for financial support CRS, enhanced synergy between stakeholders
and involvement of government ministries in CR broadcast have laid a solid foundation for its meaningful growth in India.
B) Automation of Broadcasting Wing
The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting is mandated to issue permissions for Uplinking / Downlinking of Television channels in
India as per the Policy Guidelines approved in the year 2011 and also grant of Multi System Operators (MSO) permissions, DTH license,
HITS licence, permissions to CRS and IPTV services. The Ministry also provides a single window clearance to applicants as all necessary
clearances for applicants are obtained by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting before permissions are issued to the applicants.
The first private satellite TV channel in India was permitted to uplink in 2000 from the Indian soil. Before this, the private TV
channels were uplinked only from foreign shores. With the growth in the Media and Entertainment sector, the demand for Uplinking/
Downlinking of TV Channels from India increased manifold which necessitated the framing of Policy Guidelines for Uplinking in 2002
and Downlinking in 2005. These guidelines were further amended in December 2011. This Ministry grants permission to Private Satellite
TV Channels under Uplinking and Downlinking Guidelines.
During the 12th Plan, it is proposed to automate various sections of broadcasting wing, namely, TV (I) Section, BP&L Section and
CRS Section, for grant of permission/registration to various broadcasting services. The project involves development, testing and deployment of an integrated online portal solution.
This is a new Plan Scheme namely “Automation of Broadcasting Wing” under Plan Revenue. The project is now envisaged to be
executed by BECIL which will include the entire cost of system integration, manpower and post implementation support for a period of
five years.
Objective of the scheme is to establish a computerized, web-based system for the speedy processing of applications of various
broadcasting licenses /permissions. The application software will have inter-face with other concerned ministries.
26
Executive Summary
The Ministry of Information & Broadcasting is mandated to issue permissions for Uplinking/downlinking of television channels in
India as per the Policy Guidelines 2011. The Ministry provides a single window facility to the applicants as all necessary clearances are
obtained by the Ministry.
At present, this involves large volumes of paper trails and transactions to be processed by the Department personnel. This often
leads to delays in issuing the necessary licenses, loss of documents submitted, difficulty to monitor the channel contents on a sustained and
planned basis, leading to some levels of inefficiency in the system.
In order to streamline the process of application by agencies concerned and to enable both the officials and the applicants to monitor
the status of their applications, it is proposed to develop a secure online portal that will enable the expeditious disposal of the applications
while facilitating transparency with regard to status of applications in so far as applicants are concerned.
C) Mission Digitization
India has embarked on a very ambitious exercise to digitize its Cable Network in 4 phases. The Union Cabinet had approved the Ministry’s
proposal for digitization of cable TV network on pan India basis in 4 (Four) phases, leading to complete switch off of the analog TV
services by 31st December 2016. First two phases of cable TV digitization have been completed successfully. In phase-I, which was
completed by 31st Oct 2012, out of four metro cities, digitisation was total in Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata. Chennai is yet to undergo full
transition to digital due to pending court cases. Phase-II was concluded by 31st March 2013, in 38 cities (having population more than 10
lakh) spanning across 14 states and one Union Territory. In phase-II, digitization in 36 cities is nearly total and work is in progress in
remaining 2 cities. Over, three crore Set Top Boxes (STBs) were installed in first two phases.
To achieve the target, Ministry had embarked on an aggressive Public Awareness Campaign in the electronic and print media. Video
spots and radio jingles were brought out by the Ministry for broadcast on television and radio. An intensive SMS Campaign was also
launched on mobile phones. Additionally cinema slides and hoardings on bus shelters etc, were also put up. The ‘Blackout Advertisement’
carried out by the Ministry on all prominent television channels created a massive public awareness about the digitization deadline. More
than 200 channels carried the ‘blackout advertisement’ of the Ministry on the same day and time in a synchronized fashion which is a
record of sorts.
Ministry has been closely monitoring procurement and progress of installation of STBs by various MSOs and DTH operators
27
Executive Summary
regularly. A Special Task Force was constituted to steer the entire process which consisted of various stakeholders. Ministry also launched
a special website on digitization. Sub-Groups constituted by the ministry for national level MSOs, independent MSOs and Local Cable
Operators helped the Ministry to get the feedback from ground. Extensive field visits were taken up by officials from the Ministry of
Information and Broadcasting and technical teams from BECIL which is a Public Sector Undertaking of the Ministry. The field visits were
taken to assess the ground realities and provide continuous feedback so that the digitization process could incorporate learnings from the
field. A Toll free number was also designated to answer queries of people about digitization. In the countdown to digitization, Ministry
also set up a Control Room with 5 telephone lines to provide clarifications to people and answer their queries.
The first two phases of digitization have shown positive outcomes for all stakeholders. Preliminary data from state governments
show that already there is two to three-fold increases in the Entertainment Tax collection. News Broadcasters show reduction of about 30%
in the carriage fee payment for Phase I cities. Data received from MSOs indicates increase in subscription payment of about 35% to
broadcasters.
Phase – III would cover remaining urban areas (not covered in Phase I & II) and Phase IV would cover rest of India. Phase III & IV
were scheduled for completion by 30th Sept 2014 and 31st Dec 2014 which has been extended to 31st December, 2015 and 31st December,
2016 respectively. Estimated requirement of STBs in these two phases is eleven crore. Blue print for the implementation of Phase III and
IV has been prepared. Complete digitization of the Cable Network Services would bring a paradigm shift in India’s Cable TV set up.

Chapter – I
Goals: DAVP’s Charter, available on its site, www.davp.nic.in is an attempt to deliver services in a quantifiable manner to its clients,
citizens and customers. DAVP is at present gearing to become a customer-driven organization, with quality-consciousness being inculcated amongst its officers and staff. Tools such as Information Technology, professionalization of services, and modernization of work

content which can perform an integrative role for governmental information and communicative needs.
DIRECTORATE OF FIELD PUBLICITY
The Directorate of Field Publicity is one of the Media Units of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. It is engaged in the task of
publicizing various programmes and policies of the Government through its network of 207 Field Publicity Units under the control and
supervision of 22 Regional Offices.
Field Publicity came into existence in 1953 with 32 Field Publicity Units under the control of four Regional Offices. The set-up was
created under the integrated publicity programme named “Five Year Plan Publicity Organization”. The Ministry directly exercised administrative control over the Units and Regional Offices. Later a full-fledged Directorate was constituted in 1959 to supervise and control the
activities of the Regional Offices and the Field Publicity Units and it came to be called “Directorate of Field Publicity”.
After the Sino-India war in 1962 and the Indo-Pak War in 1965, some radical changes in the approach and working of DFP became
necessary in view of the urgent need for boosting the nation’s morale and for mentally preparing the people to meet any external threat.
Accordingly, 34 more new units were created in 1963 and another 33 in 1965 for publicity exclusively in the border.
INDIAN INSTITUTE OF MASS COMMUNICATION
The Indian Institute of Mass Communication(IIMC) came into existence on August 17, 1965. Beginning with a modest staff strength,
including two consultants from UNESCO, and organizing training courses mainly for Indian Information Service Officers and undertaking research studies on a small scale, the Institute has over the last about 48 years, graduated into conducting a number of specialized
courses for meeting the diverse and demanding requirements of the rapidly expanding and changing media and communications industry
in modern times.
30
Chapter – I
Mandate, Goals and Objectives, Policy Framework and Policy Statement

departments/organsations of the Central/State Governent/Public Sector Organizations, Universities and other Academic Institutions.
With the growing popularity of the Institute’s training activities and with a view to meet regional aspirations, the Institute opened
a Regional Centre at Dhenkanal, Odisha in 1993 for catering to the demands of the eastern region. Two new Regional Centres at Amravati
(Maharashtra) and Aizawl (Mizoram) were made functional in temporary accommodation provided by respective State Governments in
August 2011 and another two new Regional Centres at Jammu (J&K) and Kottayam (Kerala) in August 2012.
Financial support is made available to the Institute by the Government of India through the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting.

Mandate, Goals and Objectives, Policy Framework and Policy Statement
Chapter – I
improving the standards of the press, the Council performs a multi-faceted role. It acts on the one hand as a quasi judicial authority with
all powers of the civil court and on the other, in its advisory capacity; it guides the press as well as the authorities on any matter that may
have a bearing on the freedom of the press and on its preservation.
The Press Council is headed by a Chairman who has by convention been a sitting/retired judge of the Supreme Court of India.
Besides, the Council consists of 28 other members, of whom 20 represent the press, five are from the two Houses of Parliament and three
represent the cultural, literary and legal fields and are nominated by Sahitya Akademi, University Grants Commission and the Bar Council
of India representing the reader’s interest.
The Council is funded by the revenue collected by it as fee levied on the registered newspapers in the country on the basis of their
circulation, the deficit is being made good by way of grant by the Central Government. Though to some extent the Council is dependent
on the Government for finances, yet insofar as functional autonomy is concerned, it has remained completely uninfluenced by any extraneous considerations in discharge of its functions. The quasi-judicial function of the Council are discharged following the mandate and
procedure of Section 14 & 15 of the Press Council Act, 1978 and the advisory and guiding functions are undertaken under various

senior officials hold press conferences to brief journalists/pressmen about the policies and programmes of the Government of India.
2.
Over the years, two very major developments have occurred in the media scene the world over. One, the exponential growth of
internet and two, the advent of 24 hours news channels. These developments have made the communication very fast, transgressed
national boundaries and has brought immediacy to collection and dissemination of news to the people. Therefore, while the traditional
media, especially the print media, remain important, PIB needs to cater to the needs of the emerging media and also make best use of
emerging tools to serve the media and population at large.
32
Chapter – I
Mandate, Goals and Objectives, Policy Framework and Policy Statement
3.
Since information on all subjects is now readily available through internet and because of greater transparency and accessibility,
PIB’s traditional tools of information dissemination need to be made more contemporary and suited to the needs of the modern media. The
Bureau must, therefore, undertake innovative activities to present information in a more interesting and instantly usable way to its clients.
4.
PIB is also responsible to provide genuine feedback from the media to the various government departments to enable the latter to
take necessary corrective actions or to shift focus to new directions.

forward the steps that have already been taken by the Ministry in this regard. The scheme envisages launching a multi-media campaign

C) National Film Heritage Mission
Ministry of Information and Broadcasting is implementing this new 12th Plan Scheme viz. “National Film Heritage Mission” (NFHM) to
restore, digitize and archive films and filmic material through National Film Archive of India. Administrative approval for implementation of the scheme was issued on 24.11.2014.
The scheme proposes to preserve film heritage with the goal of “preservation without errors, access without end”. The proposed
activities in the Plan Scheme are as follows:
(a)
Restoration of 1050 feature films and 960 short films;
(b)
Digitalization of 1050 feature films and of 1200 short films;
(c)
Striking of inter-negatives of 1050 feature films and 960 short films for archiving purposes;
(d)
Construction of vaults of international standards for preservation of such restored material;
(e)
Conduct of training programmes in the fields of restoration and preservation.
D) Setting up of National Centre for Excellence for Animation, Gaming and VFX
Rapid technological development has pushed growth in the fields of animation, gaming and special visual effects. 2D cell animation and
3D animation techniques are used to develop animation contents in television programmes, movies and video games involving extensive
use of animation software programmes. 3D motion capture animation techniques are used in low resolution game, internet characters,
special effects, etc. Similarly, the gaming industry depends upon latest gaming software for game design, platform design and play
characteristics. The Indian gaming industry is expected to capture opportunities in the mobile and online gaming segments. Animation,
gaming and visual effects industry is both technology and technical/professional manpower intensive. The Indian industry is already
facing a paradox. While India’s share in these industries is currently small, it has a tremendous potential because of global demand and the
comparative advantage of India in having a huge pool of IT professionals.
Visual Effects is a highly skilled activity and increasingly manifest in the audio-visual industry. This skill development would be
analogous to animation and gaming and has tremendous revenue potential.
60
Chapter – I
Mandate, Goals and Objectives, Policy Framework and Policy Statement
However, the rapidly increasing animation, gaming and visual effects industry is already facing manpower shortage of trained
professionals. The projected growth of the industry is expected to increase the demand gap for skilled manpower exponentially. It is,
therefore, imperative that India ensures enhancement of trained personnel for the animation, gaming and visual effects sector. In order to
achieve the goal, an HR Plan for the sector would be required so that trained personnel increase rapidly. Thus, there is a need to establish
a clear co-relation between the school curriculum and animation training in higher education. With this objective, it has been envisaged
that a specialized training and consultancy institute for the animation, gaming and visual effect sector be set up in public private partnership to lay down and implement bench marks in terms of standards teaching and training in these sectors and provide leadership role to the
entire sector.
The Institute would provide research opportunities in the sector too. This would enable further technological initiatives and software development. In long term perspective, research provides not only for creation of intellectual property but also increasing revenue
generation and an acknowledgement of leadership in the sector concerned.
It is proposed to set up the Institute under Public-Private Partnership Model. The scheme has not yet been approved.
BROADCASTING SECTOR
ELECTRONIC MEDIA MONITORING CENTRE
Electronic Media Monitoring Centre (EMMC) is a subordinate office under the administrative control of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. It was commissioned on 9th June, 2008 with the objective to monitor the violations of the (i) Programme and
Advertisement Codes enshrined in Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act 1995 and rules framed there under, (ii) Private FM radio
channels, and (iii) Any other work relating to monitoring of contents of broadcasting sector.
The Government has already granted permission to about 850 TV channels, which is likely to reach 1500 channels by the end of the
12th Five Year Plan (2012-17). Recording and monitoring capacity augmentation of these 1500 Satellite TV Channels has been envisaged
in the 12thplan. Presently, there are about 245 private FM Stations operational in the country and about 800 FM stations are proposed
under Phase-III. Centralized FM content monitoring is to be started during the 12th Plan period. Apart from this about 180 Community
Radio Stations (CRS) are on air presently and about 220 applications are in process. The centralized content monitoring facility for CRS
shall also be commissioned shortly. Accordingly, Plan Scheme for "Strengthening of EMMC" at a total cost of ` 90 crore has been
sanctioned.

Chapter – I
Mandate, Goals and Objectives, Policy Framework and Policy Statement
Regional Telecasts
To cater to the specific area, socio-cultural and linguistic diversity in the country, Doordarshan telecasts programme in regional languages
and dialects for the benefit of people living in different regions of the country, especially those who speak major regional languages such
as Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, Oriya, Bengali, Assamese, Punjabi, Gujarati, Marathi and Kashmiri. In addition to the primary
language programmes there are 11 regional language satellite channels also telecasting programmes in Urdu, Sindhi, Sanskrit, Tulu,
Konkani, Dogri, Himachali, Haryanvi, Nepali and all North-East languages and dialects.
The regional language programmes are primarily available on satellite with a terrestrial support of different HPTs and LPTs in the
State concerned between 3.00 pm and 8.00 pm as regional window of DD-1 through ground Transmitters, except in Tamil Nadu where the
terrestrial support was extended up to 11.00 pm.
These regional language satellite channels offer a variety of programmes and formats produced in different regions even within the
same State and feed and telecast from the capital Kendra of the respective State. The programme mix of these channels includes feature
films, films songs, serials, classical/light/folk music, dance, news and current affairs and programmes on agricultural and rural development, etc. catering to the needs of all segments of the society like women, children and youth with specific audience programmes.
State Networks
Doordarshan also has regional service telecast called state network for the people living in North India which comprises Delhi, UP, Bihar,
Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, MP, Rajasthan, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh. From 3.00 to 4.00 pm one-hour northern network serial based
entertainment programmes from Monday to Saturday and on Sundays Hindi feature film are being relayed from DDK, Delhi by all these

8.00 pm and are relayed by all the ground transmitters of that State, to connect the local happenings in the local primary dialect of the region.
The main emphasis throughout the year remained on flagship programmes apart from education, information & entertainment.
Various regional Kendras irrespective of their capacity generated achievements in highlighting flagship programmes and public service
programmes.
DD Archives
DD Archives is the custodian of media content created over 40 years. Future of any media organization depends on its media assets being
managed effectively, as a broadcasting channel will depend more and more on the file footage to contextualize the current events. Also the
69
Mandate, Goals and Objectives, Policy Framework and Policy Statement
Chapter – I
cultural content of DD Archives is very valuable as DD Archives is the only channel which recognizes its responsibility for conserving
various cultural trends including classical music, classical dance, folk music and folk dance, tribal music and dance life style, theater both
traditional and modern, popular music and dance, literature ancient and modern so on and so forth. This valuable content represents the
pulsating cultural life of a country which is hailed all over the world for its cultural legacy. DD Archives has taken up the mission of
preserving its content which represents the past and present of our country for the future and posterity. In next 4 years DD Archives will
evolve as one of the best broadcasting archives of the world.
Self Finance Commissioning (SFC)
Doordarshan formulated a new scheme for self finance commissioning to outsource quality entertainment content for its flagship channel
DD-I from eminent producers in the country. Under the scheme, the software produced by the veteran film makers and television producers would be marketed by Doordarshan. These contents are owned by the Doordarshan and the same can be utilized for telecast on its other
channels also and the scheme is earning a good revenue during the prime time of the Doordarshan.
DD is committed to occupy all the prime-time and mid-prime slots by SFC Programmes. Apart from these prime-time and midprime-time slot, there is a strategy under consideration to capture non-prime time slots also for SFC Programmes. It is worth mentioning
that every year the cost of production is increasing and to compete with other satellite channels in quality we have to increase episode price
accordingly.
Programmes produced under this scheme are the sole property of Doordarshan. DD can use this property as and when required,
without any additional cost, on any channel of Doordarshan. This right was not available to DD with sponsored programme. One time
investment is required for multiple uses, without any recurring expenditure. Apart from the increase in revenue, DD has got rid of the
problems of outstanding dues against marketing agencies/sponsors as DD is directly dealing with the clients. There is no scope for court
cases/arbitration. During the current financial year, an experiment has been made to introduce a daily serial in the prime- time which is
expected to improve the viewership as well as revenue of Doordarshan.
Commissioning of Software
In-house production activities are being carried out through Kendras like Hyderabad, Lucknow, Mumbai, Patna, Jaipur, Srinagar, Jammu,
etc.
New initiatives
Government has approved a scheme on Kissan Channel with a provision of `100 crore during 2014-15. In addition, schemes for strengthening of regional Channels such as DDK, Vijaywada after reorganization of Andhra Pradesh into 2 states namely Andhra Pradesh &

MAIN SECRETARIAT’S BROADCASTING WING SCHEMES
A) Supporting Community Radio Movement in India
Ministry of Information and Broadcasting grants permission to set up Community Radio Stations. Government introduced the policy
guidelines for permitting community radio stations in the year 2002, which were revised in the year 2006. Earlier Guidelines allowed only
Educational Institutions to operate Community Radio Stations. New Guidelines broadened the eligibility criteria and allowed community
based organizations including civil societies and voluntary organizations, State Agriculture Universities (SAUs), ICAR Institutions, Krishi
Vigyan Kendras, Registered Societies/Autonomous Bodies/Public Trusts registered under the Societies Act to operate Community Radio
Stations subject to fulfillment of the eligibility conditions.
Ministry is also popularizing the community radio scheme through awareness workshops so that more and more grass root organizations are encouraged to set up CR stations. Under 11th Plan Scheme “IEC Activities for Community Radio”, Ministry organized 37
awareness/capacity building workshop. In the 12th five year plan, a new scheme namely Supporting Community Radio Movement in India
has been introduced. In addition to IEC Activities, the new scheme will also provide financial assistance to new and existing CRS for
equipment acquisition & training etc. The scheme will also support innovations in the CR sector. In the first 2 years of the 12th plan
scheme, 18 awareness workshops have been orgnaised. Also, applications have been invited from CR stations/permission holders for
financial assistance.
B) Automation of Broadcasting Wing
The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting grants permissions to Pvt. Satellite TV Channels. The applications for new TV channels are
examined in the light of the eligibility criteria as prescribed in the Policy Guidelines for Uplinking and Downlinking. The applications are
forwarded to the Ministry of Home Affairs for obtaining security clearance for the Company and its Board of Directors. The applications
are simultaneously sent to the Department of Space/Department of Revenue as the case may be for obtaining necessary clearances. The
71
Mandate, Goals and Objectives, Policy Framework and Policy Statement
Chapter – I
Net worth of the company is also examined to determine the eligibility of the company among other eligibility criteria. Permissions are
issued by the Ministry to the applicants after obtaining Inter-Ministerial clearances and Registration and Permission Fee as applicable.
Ministry has permitted more than 830 TV channels so far. More than 243 applications are in various stages of processing. In addition
to this, the section also receives 8-10 requests on an average for sanction of fresh permissions on a monthly basis. To add to this a large
number of requests are received by the INSAT section for change of name, Logo, appointment of directors, change in the Share Holding
Pattern, temporary Uplinking applications and hiring of SNG/DSNG vans. The section has also to deal with FIPB cases, Forex remittance
clearances, parliamentary questions, RTI petitions and VIP references. There are other ongoing activities like renewal of permissions for
channels and issue of show cause notices etc. for violations of terms and conditions of Uplinking and downlinking. All this involves large
volume of paper trails and follow ups with Ministries and applicants. This often leads to delays in issuing the necessary licenses, loss of
documents submitted, difficulty in monitoring processing on a sustained and planned basis, leading to some levels of inefficiency in the
system.
In order to streamline the process of application by agencies concerned and to enable both the Dept. officials and the applicants to
monitor the status of their applications, it is proposed to develop a secure online portal that will enable the expeditious disposal of the
applications while facilitating transparency with regard to status of applications in so far as applicants are concerned.
C) Mission Digitisation
Digitization of the Cable TV sector in the country is one of the thrust areas of the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting during the 12th
Five Year Plan. Cable TV is the backbone of TV distribution in the country. The cable TV networks in the country are predominantly
analog in nature. As per data provided by FICCI-KPMG 2014, there are around 88 million Cable TV homes in the country, majority of
which receive TV signals in analog mode. Analog Cable TV distribution has number of problems/ maladies, capacity constraints and
issues relating to choice of channels and quality of signals.
To address the draw backs in the existing analog TV distribution system, ministry is implementing digitization with addressability
in Cable TV sector in a phased time bound manner leading to complete switch off of all analog services by 31st December, 2016. In first
phase 3 metro cities i.e. Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata have already become digital. In Chennai the matter is sub judice. Second phase in which
38 cities (with a population of greater than one million) had to be digitised by 31st March, 2013 has also been completed. All other urban
areas are slated for Digital Addressable system by 31st December, 2015 and rest of India by 31st December, 2016.
72
Chapter – I
Mandate, Goals and Objectives, Policy Framework and Policy Statement
Ministry of Information & Broadcasting has been mandated for timely and effective implementation of the digitization roadmap.
Consequent to the amendment of Cable TV Act in December, 2011, the Ministry has issued rules in this regard. TRAI has also notified
tariff and interconnection regulations to enable all stakeholders to take further necessary steps for the implementation of digitisation.
The digitization mainly involves installation of digital head-end setup and feeding of digital encrypted signals by MSOs, upgradation
of the distribution networks by LCOs and seeding of the Set Top Boxes in consumer premises to enable them to watch digital cable TV
signals. The major task in this regard is the seeding of around 88 million cable Set Top Boxes in consumer premises for subscribers all over
the country.
The procurement and seeding of STBs is carried out by MSOs through the Local Cable Operators (LCOs), in respective areas. It is
estimated that there are around 6000 MSO and 60,000 LCOs in the country. The MSOs have to individually procure requisite number of
STBs and deploy these at each subscriber’s premises and activate them before scheduled date of migration to digital. These MSOs are
required to plan in advance their procurement schedule and weekly STB seeding targets so that the digitization work can be completed in
a planned manner by scheduled date.
The entire project would have to be done in a mission mode requiring special attention and requisite manpower. Ministry does not
have requisite manpower to undertake this massive exercise. The project involves meticulous collection of data and analysis to keep a
watch over the deadline. The project requires extensive field visits by the teams to assess ground realities. Phase I was spread over 4 cities
and Phase II over 38 cities. These two phases could be managed by the available staff of Ministry, BECIL & Prasar Bharati but Phase III
covers more than 3000 urban areas and Phase IV involves hundreds of towns & villages. These two phases cannot be managed by the
existing arrangement. As it was not possible to complete the remaining phases with the existing arrangement, the scheme “Mission
Digitisation” under Plan was mooted and approved by the competent authority. The plan scheme is to be executed through Broadcast
Engineering Consultants India Limited (BECIL), a PSE of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting on nomination basis. This
involves setting up of 12 Regional Units, a multi-lingual website and a multi-lingual toll free helpline.
The objective of the project has been to put into place a mechanism which would help in effective monitoring of the seeding of STBs
and other related activities to ensure timely implementation of the targets set by the Government for cable TV Digitalization.

There is an urgent need to have
an effective legal mechanism in
place to combat piracy and at
the same time there is a need to
create public awareness of the
affects of piracy on the
economy amongst consumers.
The consumers are passive
participants in various forms of
piracy. Therefore, an effective
and all encompassing multimedia campaign to be carried
out during the 12th Plan period
involving all stake holders from
the film and music industry.
It is also felt that there is a need

Reforms, Measures and Policy Initiatives
INDIAN INSTITUTE OF MASS COMMUNICATION
One of the major activities of the Institute equips young men and women who aspire to be associated ultimately with a variety of media
institutions with the basic skills/techniques required and provides insights into different dimensions of the field. An attempt is made by
the Institute to develop its students into useful members of society. It is found that, generally, about 60% of students in the various PG
Diploma Courses of IIMC are women, thus furthering the cause of women’s empowerment in the media and communication field in India.
In a major thrust to promote greater decentralization, IIMC has opened 4New Regional Centres at Aizawl (Mizoram), Amravati
(Maharashtra), Jammu (J & K) and Kottayam (Kerala). These are in addition to its existing Regional Centre at Dhenkanal (Odisha) and
its Head Quarters at New Delhi.
Transparency in the admission process through the conduct of an all-India entrance examination is ensured by uploading all results
at the written test, as well as interview and final list stages on the Institute’s website.
PHOTO DIVISION
The primary function of the Photo Division is to document photographically the growth and development as well as the political,
economical and social changes in the country and to provide visuals to the various Government organizations. In order to make a platform
for the cross referencing, the images would be put into its website so as to allow the picture hunters, researchers, and organizations or
agencies to access the available images from the archives of Photo Division. A special initiative has been taken for visual documentation
of the development activities in the North-East Region and the isolated places like Jammu & Kashmir, Andaman and Nicobar Islands
and Lakshadweep under the Plan Scheme. Initiatives have been taken to make the Digital Library System more effective and creating a
system to preserve the Digital images for a longer period. While celebrating the Golden Jubilee of the Photo Division, it had introduced
the Life Time Achievement Awards for outstanding photographers of the country. This is being continued and National Photo Awards are

REGISTRAR OF NEWSPAPERS FOR INDIA
Over the years, print media has enlarged its horizon to a great extent beyond the ambit of the Press and Registration of Books Act,
1867. Accordingly, the PRB Act, 1867 and the Rules made thereunder have been reviewed with a view to making the Act relevant in the
present scenario of the print media.
The existing PRB Act, 1867 is deficient in many respects due to absence of clear provisions, particularly on title verification, foreign
publications and circulation verification. It also lacks measures to counter problem of squatting. There is also absence of time frame for
disposal of title applications and authentication of declaration by district authorities which usually causes avoidable delay. Hence, the
existing Act is suggested to be replaced by the proposed amendments namely, ‘The Press and Registration of Books and Publications
Act, 2014’ in order to eliminate the deficiencies.
With a view to providing prompt, efficient and transparent service to the newspapers and ensuring effective implementation of
the PRB Act and evolving and enforcing a strict circulation check, two new Regional Offices at Guwahati in North Eastern Region and
Bhopal in Central Region were opened during 11th Plan Period 2007-12. During 12th Plan Period 2012-2017, three activities namely (i)
digitalisation of records (ii) Online Registration process and (iii) e-filing of Annual Statements have been taken up for implementation.

SONG AND DRAMA DIVISION
The Division was set up in 1954 as small experimental unit to tap the abundant folk and traditional forms for communication purposes. The ‘live media’ as it is popularly known now, proved very effective because of its inherent advantage of instantaneous rapport
with the masses and flexibility to incorporate contemporary issues, ideas and methods with conviction. The Division’s scope and size,
therefore, was enlarged to give it greater reach, access and impact in its efforts to communicate at the grassroots level, including inaccessible hilly terrains, desert and border areas.
The main function of the Division, as elaborated on its official website, is to create awareness and emotional receptivity among the
general public regarding social, economic and democratic ideals which are conducive to the progress of the nation, creating among the
154

people in border areas a sense of defence preparedness and cultural integrity with the rest of the country and keeping up the morale of the
Army Jawans posted in isolated forward areas through live entertainment media which includes both urban theatre forms and folk forms
covering all the regions of the country.
To achieve its objectives, the Division utilizes a wide range of folk and traditional art forms, such as, folk and traditional dramas,
ballets, operas, dance dramas, folk and traditional recitals, puppetry and even the skills of hundreds of magicians with age old tradition.
In addition, the Division utilizes sound and light spectacle with modern techniques and hundreds of artistes for presenting programmes
on important national themes such as Communal Harmony, National Integration, Secularism, promotion of Cultural Heritage, Health,
Environment, Education, etc.
By way of utilizing numerous folk and traditional art forms available in different parts of the country, the Division on one hand
has become a potent source of revival and sustenance to these art forms and on the other hand is able to provide livelihood to thousands
of performers by utilizing their skills/talents in their own languages, idioms and dialects for purposeful communication.
In order to ensure greater transparency and wider publicity it is proposed to undertake computerization and adaptation of modern
technologies in the Musical equipments, Public address systems under the head “modernization”. With a view to improve the quality of
programmes, Research, Development, Training and Impact assessment will be undertaken.

telecasting. The infrastructure, primarily, includes land, building, tower, transmitters, studios Satellite Earth Stations, Archiving facility,
Staff Training Institute (Technical), Research and Development Division, etc over the years. Starting with a modest beginning of 500 W
Medium Wave transmitters, AIR has grown into a major broadcasting organization having 493 Radio transmitters covering 91.87% area and
99.19% population. In addition, 21 Radio Channels on free-to-air DTH Platform of DD Direct Plus are also providing coverage to almost
entire country. Doordarshan is presently operating 33 Satellite channels and vast network of 67 studios and 1416 Transmitters of varying
capacities with the TV coverage of about 92% population of the country. In addition, Doordarshan is providing free-to-air DTH service.
The infrastructure, primarily, includes land, building, tower, transmitters, studios Satellite Earth Stations, Archiving facility, National
Academy of Broadcasting and Multi Media (Technical), Research and Development etc. In order to tap the potential, AIR Resources was
set up as an independent center in May 2001 for earning revenue from the vast infrastructure.

MAIN SECRETARIAT’S BROADCASTING WING SCHEMES
A) Supporting Community Radio Movement in India
In last 5 years Ministry has taken several steps to strengthen community radio movement in India. As a result the number of permissions have increased from 186 to 409 and operational stations from 64 to 179. Some of the important initiatives taken by Ministry to
strength community radio movement are described below:
Simplification of approval process: To expedite the process of obtaining inter-ministerial clearances and overcome communication
gaps, monthly co-ordination meetings were introduced with concerned Ministries/Departments.
A Facilitation Centre has been set up in the Ministry to help CR applicants/visitors - A toll free number (1800-11-6346) has been
operationalised.

Chapter III
Reforms, Measures and Policy Initiatives
Awareness Generation: So far, 63 workshops have been organised across the country since 2008. These workshops have provided
an opportunity to grassroots organisations and others to understand the issues concerning application process, objective and philosophy
behind CR.
Four annual national conclaves called National Community Radio Sammelan of CR operators have also been organised to provide
an opportunity to Government functionaries, media activists and CR operators to meet at a single platform for exchange of ideas and cross
learning. Four Editions of CRS Compendiums (2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014) have been published.
National CR Awards: National Community Radio Awards accompanied with cash incentives have been constituted to promote
better programming on CR stations and motivate CR operators to aim and achieve goals of community empowerment. These awards are
presented to eligible CR stations during National Community radio Sammelans.
Enhanced Sustainability: In the 12th Plan, a new Plan Scheme of Rs.100 Crore, “Supporting Community Radio Movement in
India”, has been introduced to provide financial support to community radio.
Rates for CRS advertisement have been revised from Rs.1 per second to Rs.4 per second. Also, Guidelines & Rates are now in place
for sponsored programmes on CRS by Central and State Govt.
Empanelment process of CRS with DAVP has been simplified. About 55 CRS have already been empanelled with DAVP.
Advocacy with Ministries/Departments: Constant interaction with Ministries like Women and Child Development, Ministry of
Panchayati Raj, National Disaster Management Authority etc. helped them to understand the potential of CR in meeting the development
goals. These Ministries have started partnering with CR stations to air public service messages on health, nutrition, sanitation, education
for girl child, consumer concerns, disaster preparedness etc.
B) Automation of Broadcasting Wing
During the 12th Plan, it is proposed to automate various sections of broadcasting wing for grant of permission/registration to various
broadcasting services. The project involves development, testing and deployment of an integrated online portal solution. The project will

Currently there are eighteen main processes within TV (INSAT) division for the same. These are:
•
Up linking of TV channel
•
Down linking of TV channel
•
Permission for teleports
•
Change of name and logo
•
Change of teleports
•

PRESS COUNCIL OF INDIA
Review of Past Performance
The objectives of the Press Council and its functions are of quasi judicial nature. It regulates the press with ethical standards.
Thus quantifying it with the targets set in terms of physical and the results achieved is not plausible. The only quantifiable activity
is the quasi-judicial activity. The Complaints received and disposed off during the period 2014-15 and 2015-16 has been reflected in
the statement attached. Further, the debates were organized with the objective to analyse the role the media can play in a democracy
by looking it as an agency for people to access information which also plays a crucial role in mobilizing the thinking of millions in
various parts of the country throughout the year and as a part of National Press Day celebrations. The National Press Day in 2014
was focused on “Transparency in Public Affairs : The Role of the Press”. A collection of valuable articles and views of eminent
leaders on the subject was released through its Souvenir. Most of States/UTs also commemorated the day in a befitting manner. The
National Awards in Excellence in Journalism were conferred on this occasion after due process of selection from nomination across
the length and breadth of the country.
In its advisory capacity the Council provided the government and other authorities with its views on many issues. Some of the
important ones are as follows:1.
National Review in context of the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action
2.
Communication from Hon’ble former Justice Ajit Prakash Shah, Chairman, Law Commission of India, Govt. of India regarding
paper on Media Law
3.
Communication from MIB regarding furnishing the source of article published in Indian Express on 12.05.14 captioned “Modi
Interview: PrasarBharati writes to I&B Ministry again’’
4.
Special Mention raised by Shri Basawaraj Patil, MP on 09.07.2014 regarding “Demand for making a Concrete Policy for reporting
crimes against Women by the newspapers and other media in the country
5.
Communication received from Information Department, Government of Jammu and Kashmir
6.
Communication from MIB regarding separate information of Telangana State in reply to Parliamentary questions/matters
7.
Communication received from MIB regarding suggestions to turn around India from ‘Breakdown to Breakout’
8.

SONG AND DRAMA DIVISION
The Division was set up in 1954 as small experimental unit to tap the abundant folk and traditional forms for communication purposes. The ‘live media’ as it is popularly known now, proved very effective because of its inherent advantage of instantaneous rapport with the masses and flexibility to incorporate contemporary issues, ideas and methods with conviction. The Division’s scope
and size, therefore, was enlarged to give it greater reach, access and impact in its efforts to communicate at the grassroots level,
including inaccessible hilly terrains, desert and border areas.
The main function of the Division, as elaborated on its official website, is to create awareness and emotional receptivity among
the general public regarding social, economic and democratic ideals which are conducive to the progress of the nation, creating
among the people in border areas a sense of defence preparedness and cultural integrity with the rest of the country and keeping up
the morale of the Army Jawans posted in isolated forward areas through live entertainment media which includes both urban theatre
forms and folk forms covering all the regions of the country.
Folk and traditional media or live media as properly known acquires special significance not only because of linguistic, geographical and cultural affinity and identification but also because it is most effective in the present socio- economic circumstances
in rural India. It is indeed a very advantageous situation that our country has vast reservoirs of folk and traditional forms through
which required messages, information or awareness can be created in a manner which is instantaneously recognized, received and
acted upon by the masses. This is especially with regard to developmental schemes targeted to poverty alleviation and general welfare
of the rural masses in sectors such as National Integration and Communal Harmony, Health, education, sanitation, Environment etc.
Folk and Traditional media therefore would continue to be utilized as an effective and integral component of the overall media
strategy specially in rural, un- electrified and in accessible areas for creating awareness amongst the masses of the various initiatives being taken by the government in the interest of the common man specially the poor.
There are nearly 10,000 folk and traditional artistes including Departmental Troupes, Empanelled Artistes and Private Registered
Troupes working with the Division on a fairly regular basis. Perhaps Song and Drama Division is one of the models Government
organizations which has tremendous flexibility to enhance its areas of operation as well as quantum of activity without increasing
non-plan expenditure creating permanent long term liability thereby, only about 8% of the Division’s working strength is on the
regular rolls of the Division. In addition it is an undisputed fact that the traditional Media or live Media is the most cost effective
medium for IEC activities, given its reach, impact and flexibility.
The Division headed by Director functions at three levels viz. (i) Headquarters at Delhi (ii) Ten Regional Centres located at
Bangalore, Bhopal, Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi, Guwahati, Kolkata, Lucknow, Pune and Ranchi (iii) Eight border Centres headed by
Asstt. Directors located at Darbhanga, Guwahati, Jammu, Jodhpur, Imphal, Nainital, Dehradun and Shimla (iv) Six Departmental
Drama Troupes headed by Managers located at Bhubaneswar, Delhi, Hyderabad, Patna, Pune and Srinagar(Jammu).

MAIN SECRETARIAT’S BROADCASTING WING SCHEMES
A) Supporting Community Radio Movement in India
In the 12th Plan, a new Plan Scheme of Rs.100 Crore, “Supporting Community Radio Movement in India”, was introduced to provide
financial support to community radio. The Scheme has two components namely Community Radio Support Scheme (CRSS) and IEC
Activities for Community Radio.
Comprehensive Guidelines were prepared to implement the scheme. A Technical Committee constituted by the Ministry shortlisted
equipment essential for operating a CRS and finalized specifications/benchmarks of each shortlisted equipment. This will be the benchmark for equipment to be purchased by CRS under this scheme. A Programme Management Unit (PMU) was also set up to implement
the 12th Plan Scheme.
Under IEC Activities, Ministry is giving wide publicity to the Community Radio Scheme by organizing State and Regional workshops
with various stakeholders so that more and more community based organizations come forward to set up community radio stations. 55
awareness & capacity building workshops have been organized across the country since the year 2007. Four National Sammelans have
also been organized.
During the year 2012-13, 9 awareness workshops were organized at Mount Abu, Orchha (M.P.), Agara, Dibrugarh, Darjleeng, Goa,
Vizag, Dharamsala and Ooty in association with three organizations namely OneWorld Foundation India, Common Wealth Educational
Media Centre for Asia and Community Radio Association. Also 3rd National Sammelan was organized in February 2013 in which National
CR Awards were presented and third edition of CR Compendium was released.
During the financial year 2013-14 also Ministry organized 9 awareness workshops at Faridabad, Bhubaneswar, Kochi, Bangalore,
Jaipur, Jamshedpur, Darjeeling, Dehradun and Patna. These consultations and workshops have been successful in addressing issues concerning guidelines, application procedure, content and sustainability issues for CRS. A three days workshop was organized in New Delhi in December 2013 on CR and Digital Tools to build the capacity of CR stations
to use digital tools like face book, U-tube, Mobile, website etc. to enhance their reach. About 30 NGOs run stations were invited in this
workshop. It was organized by Digital Empowerment Foundation.
Fourth National Sammelan was held from 13th to 15th March 2014 at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi, in which representatives of about
200 CR stations, concerned Ministries, International organisations and activists participated. National Community Radio Awards were
275
Review of Past Performance
Chapter IV
presented during the Sammelan and 4th Edition of CR Compendium was also published.
The peer review process was undertaken by the Ministry to promote self-assessment and co-learning among the community radio
stations. There were three toolkits designed by different stake holders viz. Commonwealth Educational Media Centre for Asia (CEMCA)
in association with UNESCO Chair on Community Media and UNICEF.
In two phases 68 Community Radio Stations participated voluntarily. All stations were oriented to conduct self assessment of their
stations using toolkits. One representative from each station visited 2 other CR stations. The end line experience sharing workshop for
the first phase was held in New Delhi from 13-15 May, 2014 and the detailed report has been published. For the second phase end line
workshop was held in December 2014. In the experience sharing workshops all 68 CRS who participated in the process informed that they
were able to identify strengths and challenges in their own CRS as well as the ones they visited and drew up plans for self-improvement
in the short, mid and long term. Also, informal networks to learn from each other have begun to be set-up. For instance exchange of documentation process, logging software, archiving retrieval systems and exchange of programme ideas have begun.
During the Financial Year 2014-15, Ministry has organized eight (8) awareness workshops at Pune, Bhopal, Mussoorie, Lucknow,
Kolkata, Guwahati, Bhuj and Wayanad.
The Ministry of Information & Broadcasting (MIB) introduced Regional Sammelans for Community Radio Stations in the country.
This decision owes its genesis to a desire expressed by Community Radio Stations at the National Community Radio Sammelan so that
regional CRS could better be represented. Regional Sammelans aim to provide a platform to the operational CRS to share their grass root
stories, successes, issues and good practices.
The first three-day Regional Sammelan of Community Radio stations was organised by the Ministry in collaboration with One World
Foundation India at Puducherry from 28-30 September, 2014. Forty Community Radio Stations from southern states namely- Tamil Nadu,
Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Telangana, Maharashtra, Odisha and Puducherry participated in it.
The second three-day Regional Community Radio Sammelan was held at Lucknow from 10-12 October, 2014, supported by MIB
and hosted by Community Radio Association (CRA). Out of 90 stations licensed in north India, 65 Community Radio Stations participated
in the sammelan. Two representatives from each CRS were invited to participate in Regional Sammelan.
B) Automation of Broadcasting Wing
The order to implement the scheme through BECIL is under finalization and thereafter, the MOU between Ministry and BECIL would
be undertaken.

CHAPTER VI
REVIEW AND PERFORMANCE OF AUTONOMOUS BODIES
INFORMATION SECTOR
INDIAN INSTITUTE OF MASS COMMUNICATION
IIMC’s performance regarding training, teaching and research in Mass Communication has been found up to the mark as IIMC has been
able to pay adequate attention towards the conducting of its courses and also in imparting training to officers of the Government, Army
and Para-Military Forces. IIMC has also shown good performance with regard to the research projects undertaken on behalf of the Ministries and Departments of the Govt.
IIMC has also taken actions for its Upgradation to International Standards under the Plan Scheme. In this direction, IIMC, in the
first stage, proposes that it be granted the status of ‘An Institution of National Importance’ through an Act of Parliament that would enable
it to introduce Masters and Doctoral programmes. Four new Regional Centres have also been opened in the States of J & K, Mizoram,
Maharashtra (Vidarbha) and Kerala.
PRESS COUNCIL OF INDIA
Press Council of India is a statutory autonomous body. During deliberations on the ERC Recommendations in the Ministry it was felt
that keeping in mind the nature of Press Council of India, which is a self regulatory body of the Press, such a review would neither be
appropriate nor is another ‘Peer Body’ available to review it. The above decision was also conveyed to Ministry of Finance while communicating this Ministry’s response on the ERC’s Report on autonomous institutions of this Ministry.
The performance of the Press Council has however been directly reviewed by the Parliament through its standing committee when
Press Council’s Chairman deposed before it way back in March, 2011. It was also reviewed by the Committee on Paid News which made
several important recommendations presently under consideration of the Government of India.
