High Court orders CVC inquiry into Prasar Bharati issue

New Delhi- The Delhi High Court ordered a Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) inquiry into alleged financial irregularities in Prasar Bharati Corporation and appointed a former judge to supervise Board meetings of the public broadcaster.

A bench headed by Chief Justice A. P. Shah directed the Board to convene its meeting within 15 days. The bench, also comprising Justice Manmohan, passed the order after the government failed to bring reconciliation between the Chairman of the Board, Arun Bhatnagar, and CEO B S Lalli, who have been at loggerheads.

The court said that day-to-day work of the Public Broadcaster would be handled by the CEO, Member (Finance) and Member (Personnel) of the Board.
