(INDIA’s PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTER)
Subject: Age relaxation to Casual Assignees in direct recruitment.
With a view to help casual assignees, a decision has been taken, with the approval of Prasar Bharati Board, to give age relaxation in the matter of direct recruitment to casual assignees. For this purpose, service rendered for 120 days in a year shall count for eligibility for age relaxation of one year for the post against which casual assignee concerned is being booked, provided he fulfils other conditions relating to qualifications and experience etc., for the post as indicated in the Recruitment Regulations. Service rendered for less than 120 days in a year shall not qualify for this relaxation.
Representations have been received from those casual assignees who are being booked for less than 120 days in a year requesting for considering them also for age relaxation by reducing the limit of 120 days to 72 days in a year.
It may be pointed out that even in Doordarshan Scheme of 1992, modified in 1994, which was approved by Ministry of Information and Broadcasting and accepted by the Courts, Staff Artists who had rendered 120 days of service in a year on the cut off date of 6.9.1992 were eligible for consideration for regularisation. A number of Staff Artists and Casual Assignees who had rendered such service after the cut off date of 6.9.1992 are not eligible for regularisation under the scheme even though they had put in a service of more than 120 days in a year. Age relaxation being granted now would benefit such casual Assignees also. It is hoped that this clarification would put things in the right prospective and there will be no more representation on the subject.
