GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
DIRECTORATE GENERAL : ALL INDIA RADIO
SUBJECT: Allocation of duties to Announcers.
This Directorate has received representations from Akashvani Announcers Associations stating that many AIR Stations are deploying Announcers on the duty of TREXs, erstwhile Production Assistants etc. which do not come under the purview of duties as assigned to the Announcers in accordance with AIR, Manual. This is being done in-spite of Directorate's standing instructions to this effect.
2. The matter has been re-examined. The competent authority has decided that the Announcers should be assigned those duties only which have been prescribed in AIR Manual for this category. In no case, Announcers should be asked to do the job which is required to be performed by TREXs/erstwhile Production Assistants etc. Any deviation from the instructions would be viewed seriously.
