PSA PROPOSES ANNOUNCERS CADRE REVIEW

To avoid furthers litigations and harmonious functioning of the organizations all the artistes posts (erstwhile contractual performing and non-performing artistes of all Categories) of AIR & DD should be declared as dieing cadre post. The incumbent staff should be given ACP as per 6th pay commission recommendations. The services provided by these categories of staff could be easily outsourced in the changed scenario. This will help the organization financially and face the stiff competition from the private channels.
For improving the working ambience of the organization and help the command structure of the programme wing any recruitment in the subordinate programme cadre should start with Transmission Executive, discipline wise. It is suggested that any future recruitment for the following disciplines in AIR & DD may start with Transmission Executive in Programme cadre.
(a) Librarian
(b) Announcer / Presenter
(c) News Editor
(d) Reporter (News)
(e) Other specialized subjects like Farm & Home, Sports etc.

The posts suggested for abolition are lying vacant and are at the base level. The abolition is suggested taking into consideration the changed priorities mandated to AIR/DD over the years and also the ground realities added with the fact that any future direct recruitee should be multi-skilled.  The abolition is also to cut down on expenditure and bring in job specific payments. 

It is proposed that the grading of Announcers should be continued but their scales should be upgraded and fixed in the following manner.
Grade
Existing
Proposed
Grade I
10,000-15,200
15,600-39,100 (GP 6,600/-)
Grade II
  6,500-10,500
15,600-39,100 (GP 5,400/-)
Grade III
  5,500-9,000
  9,300-34,800 (GP 4,800/-)
Grade IV
  5,000-8,000
  9,300-34,800 (GP 4,200/-)

Any vacancy in the above mentioned cadres should be left unfilled and the incumbent staff should be made eligible for the new ACP Scheme (10, 20 & 30 years). In future the needs of the work performed by the above mentioned cadres may be out-sourced.

ARUN PANDEY, VARANSI.
दोस्तों पी.एस.ए. का प्रस्ताव निहायत बचकाना और हास्यास्पद है .कोई भी संगठन अपने भलाई के लिए होता है.दूसरों के नुक्सान के लिए नहीं.बेहतर है वे अपने मुद्दों पर ध्यान दें हमारे बारे में उन्हें इतने दिनों बाद वो भी नकारात्मक सलाह देने का कोई हक नहीं. यदि हमारा काडर मृतप्राय है तो उनका काडर पहले से ही मृतप्राय है.उद्घोषकों और कम्पीयरों के कार्य के बूते अपना सेवाकाल पूरा करने वाले आज कर्त्तव्यनिष्ठ कैसे हो गए.काम आउट सोर्स होंगे तो उनका ही क्या काम .उनके इसी रवैये ने उनको और प्रोग्राम साइड को हाशिए पर ला खड़ा किया है.यदि सभी कार्यक्रम के काडर एक होते तो आज ए.आई.आर. डी.डी. की तस्वीर कुछ और होती. हम एक दूसरे की नुक्ता चीनी से कुछ नहीं पा सकते. वास्तव में बहाली और प्रोन्नति तो सभी काडर में होनी चाहिए थी.हमारे दूसरे तरफ देखिये .एकता में कितना बल है दिख जाएगा.
हमें वर्षों तक साजिश के तहत बरगलाया गया .जब काम होता है तो हमारी बड़ाई की जाती है और मतलब निकल जाने के बाद हमें मृतप्राय मान लिया जाता है. आज ट्रेक्स की कमी हर केंद्र पर है और दस दस वर्षों से कई केन्द्रों पर उदघोषक डी. ओ.का कार्य कर हैं .चेक भुगतान लोगिंग सभी कार्य .विभागीय कार्य भी जो पेक्स के होते है उन्हें भी उद्घोषकों से कराया जाता है.सिर्फ दस्तखत उनके होते हैं. पी.एस.ए. अपने गिरेबान में झांके .सच्चाई दिख जायेगी.आज अधिकाँश उदघोषक ऐसे है जो खुली भर्ती से लिखित परीक्षा और स्वर परीक्षा देकर हज़ारों की भीड से आये है .वे भी और कुछ हो सकते थे.बिना हमसे पूछे हमारे बारे में कोई बात नहीं हो सकती.ए.ए.ए.और अन्य साथी अब जागरूक हो गए हैं .और ये लोकतंत्र है.आईये अपने खिलाफ अन्याय के विरुद्ध आवाज़ उठाये.

It is highly objectionable and our Association must protest through each and every means and forum. I appeal our office bearers to awake and aware, reassess policies and strategies specially support to NFADE.

jin logo ki aawaz ne radio ko pehchan di usko khatm karne ki ye sazish nakabile bardasht hai.Vo hote kaun hai hamare bare me sujhow dene wale . Apne ko bachane ki khatir hamari bali dena chate hai . Bhagwan inhe sadbudhi de.

Dear Ratnooji, Namaskar.The recent cadre review proposal of PSA is nothing but to strengthen their association very strongly in future.LIKE NFADE, they also planning their welfare by getting the support of various cadres. In1999,they treated us, socalled RIVAL CADRE. But now? Our fate will neither be decided byPSA nor by NFADE. We AAA,will fight alone. We need not be panic. I strongly protest this.

प्रत्येक को अपने स्वार्थ के अलावा परमार्थ के बारे में भी कभी तो सोचना ही चाहिए,संतों ने कहा है कि "परहित सरिस धरम नहीं भाई".जो भी दूसरों के लिए गड्ढा खोदता है उसके लिए ईश्वर पहलेसे ही गड्ढा खोदकर रखते हैं यह किसी को भी नहीं भूलना चाहिए ,अत:जो भी तथाकथित हमारे हितैषी हैं ईश्वर उन्हें सदबुद्धि दे, ऐसे किसी भी प्रस्ताव का हमें पुरजोर विरोध करना होगा जो हमारे हित के खिलाफ हो .ए.ए.ए.जिंदाबाद .

हमारे कई उदघोषक साथियों की पी.एस.ए. के प्रस्ताव पर सख्त नाराजगी की बेबाकी से अभिव्यक्ति ये दर्शाती है कि अब ज्यादतियों को चुपचाप सहने के दिन गए. पांडुरंग जी का कथन सही है इश्वर उन्हें सदबुद्धि दे. वे 'बहुजन हिताय बहुजन सुखाय 'के मार्ग पर चल सकें खुद पाए पर दूसरे के हक न मारें.

minimum qualification for announcers is Graduate and I know there are many officers in this organisation who are under graduate and this is irony that these people are discussing our fate i m really frustrated and this is going to hamper my work quality which means the quality of programme on air

Dear friend,
Announcer,Librarian,News editor,Reporter-all thes categories to be declared Dieing-
Cadres as seen in the new PSA Proposal(letter on PSA Website).
Asstt.editor,Prod.asstt.,Producer These posts were declared dieing long back and no recruitment to these cadres,further.But the existed (extinct!)group of persons belonging to these cadres were satisfied,getting absorbed in to the feeder-channel for promotions,to the higher-ups(No more grading)We can do all the work in Broadcasting,that is the business,but not getting recognized for the rights.Yes,the name of our designation betrays us,making the Court,Ministry and the Deptt.(in the pressure of PSA)believe that Announcer is not worth a consideration for the rights and service-benefits,as demanded in our proposals.Our qualifications,natural talent,acquired knowledge and experience are forgotten in this direction and all our dignity is confined to the impression that 'Announcer'is nothing more than'ANNOUNCEMENTS' and can not be attributed with the 'EXECUTIVE'capacity. It is hightime that we should rethink whether we want to remain in the fools paradise,any more,to be just content with the feeling that the authorities have given a patient hearing on our proposals,each and everytime.Now,take this as an opportunity and a chance.If the Deptt. doesn't want us to remain in the present category,'since the service of the same could be easily outsourced in the changed scenario,which will help the organization financially and face the stiff competition from the private channels',as pointed out in the PSA-Proposal(That is the finding of the so called Professionally Skilled Association-PSA !),why cant we agree to this, on the condition to treat us also, the same way wherein the former extinct groups also enabled to enjoy all the benefits?Yes,It is not wise,remaining as children of a lesser God.We all can join the main(fortunate)stream-job of EXECUTIVES and in between, we can think about going ahead with the ANNOUNCEMENTS.ANNOUNCEMENTS.thanks....
Former member,Executive committee,AAA.

Arjun Singh Ratnoo said...

Dear Ashok, Pl read this proposal carefully and try to understand its content or spirit. First of all this is totally negative and there is no proposal to merge in feeder cadre or in TREX/PEX. It says that existing Announcers (incumbents) should be declared as dying and future recruitment may start with TREX, so not a single Announcer will be beneficiary. Pl once again go through this and clear the view.

ASHOK KUMAR,SR.ANNR.,KANNUR,KERALA
Dear friends,We all should be vigilant to find out as to whether the Deptt. is going to recommend the Govt.to declare our cadre dieing,without informing us,remaining silent,or the matter is taken up only with our consent.Then,we should put forward the CONDITION,that we (Announcers,already in service),not inferior to anybody to
access the status of higher posts,like the way the Asstt.editor,Prod.Asstt.and Producer were enabled to,also should be merged to that feeder-channel.After all,laws(rules)and their timely changes are common to any other deserving section,in a Democracy.The only thing which remains in between that justice and the consideration of the Deptt. is nothing but the name of our designation.Announcer.Past is past.Presently,together with all the qualifications(the minimum requirement is graduation and higher qualifications are preferred,as notified in the recruitment procedure),the Deptt.should realise that this ill-fated cadre is blessed with the plus-point of
in-born(natural)talent of voice also,which infact,is not a criterian of those qualities for the selection in to the cadre of the
Asstt.editor,Prod.Asstt.and Producer.Who, in the present Govt.media of Broadcasting is
more competent and professionally skilled to resist the challenge from the private media,
other than the Announcer?Does this name sound 'cheap' for the Deptt.to accommodate us
in the Executive/Administrative set-up?Then,let the Deptt.go for an amendment,for the existing posts of Announcer.The favourable name-change will be BROADCASTER.Then amalgamate that cadre also, to be equated with the Executive posts.(Taking the number of years in service and the track-record of the work in to account, we all should be made eligible for promotions to the equivalent Executive posts)Let the Deptt. recruit people,starting from the category of Transmission Executive,in future,as the Programme-personnel.That is not our concern. We must push hard for the identity in records(Not Announcer/Presenter,any longer)required now,that can bring us the ticket for that journey with the elite-class of Executives.Long live our unity..

The recent comment of PSA is visible due to new technology otherwise they have damaged us so many times e.g. In 1999 dividing us into performing and non-performing artists.
PSA should mind its own business coz we people are capable and doing all duties of PSA members but they can not perform our duties so they are burden on Prasar Bharati not we people who are special among lacs.
If PSA people are removed the orgnization will be in profit but without us AIR is like a
