The Cabinet on Tuesday approved an amendment in Prasar Bharati Act, making appointments made between between November 1997 and October 2007 “deemed deputation” till retirement, thereby giving these employees benefit of availing service like other public servants.

The Cabinet gave its nod to the amendment to section 11(2) of the Prasar Bharati (Broadcasting Corporation of India) Amendment Bill by the addition of “and until their retirement” at the end of the section.

“This will make the status of employees recruited between November 23, 1997 and October 5, 2007 -- they are on deemed deputation to Prasar Bharati till their retirement -- absolutely clear and unambiguous,” an official statement said.
