      The employees belonging to certain cadres in All India Radio and Doordarshan (particularly,subordinate engineering and programme cadres )had been agitating for grant of higher scales of pay than those recommended by the Vth Central Pay Commission and accepted vide Government of India resolution of 30th September,1997. The matter has been carefully considered by the Government and it has been decided to further upgrade the scales of pay of the categories of employees of All India Radio and Doordarshan,of Prasar Bharati(Broadcasting Corporation of India) as indicated against each category in Annexure-I.
2. The grant of revised pay scales as mentioned in para 1 above will be subject to the following conditions:
(i) The upgraded scales will be allowed not as Govt. employees per se but as Government employees currently in service of Prasar Bharati(Broadcasting Corporation of India). As and when the employees,presently working in All India Radio and Doordarshan are asked to exercise their option,those employees who do not opt for Prasar Bharati will revert as Government servants and will no longer be entitled to above scales. They will also have to refund all benefits availed of by them as a result of the grant of higher scales of pay. They will be liable to recovery of all such benefits. An undertaking in the proforma given at Annexure-II to this effect has to be submitted by each and every employee concerned before availing the benefit of upgraded scales of pay. This is in accordance with their agreement with the Government to avail these upgraded scales on this condition only.
(ii) Upgraded pay scales would be effective from 1.1.1996 but payment of salary to employees as per upgraded scales of pay will be made with effect from 1st march,1999.
(iii) The employees concerned will be entitled to arrears with effect from 1st January, 1996 and these arrears will be paid in instalments. The first instalment of the arrears pertaining to the period from November 1997 till February 1999 will be paid by April, 1999. The second instalment pertaining to remainder of the arrears ( i.e. arrears from 1.1.1996 to October, 1997) will be paid by April, 2000. The payment of arrears shall be made after adjustment of the amount already paid to the categories of Technicians, Senior Technicians, Engineering  Assistants and Senior Engineering Assistants on the basis of this Ministry’s office Memorandum No. 310/173/ 97-B(D) dated 5.12.1997.

But as per their agreement with the Government this will not entitle them to any payment of arrears for the period prior to 1.1.1996 and will be limited to fixation of their current pay as on 1.1.1996.
3. The pay fixation in the upgraded scales of pay shall be done as provided in CCS(RR) Rules,1997.
