NEW DELHI: The government today said that the Director General of Doordarshan News reports to Prasar Bharati for all operational purposes.

Union Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Rajyavardhan Rathore said this in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha.

"The Director General of Doordarshan News reports to Prasar Bharati for all operational purposes," he said.

Earlier there had been a controversy over an I&B Ministry order appointing Veena Jain as Director General of DD News which had said that she would "report to the ministry for all purposes".

However the ministry had then modified its order and said that she would report to Prasar Bharati for "all operational purposes" and to the ministry as Officer on Special Duty.

In his reply, Rathore also said the functioning of Prasar Bharati is governed by the Prasar Bharati Act, 1990.

"The Government ensures that the provisions of the Prasar Bharati Act, 1990 are complied with in letter and spirit," he added.
