The Supreme Court on Monday allowed a Central Vigilance Commission probe into the alleged irregularities at Prasar Bharati Corporation, as ordered earlier by the Delhi High Court.

While allowing the Central Vigilance Commission inquiry, a Supreme Court Bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan stayed the other part of the High Court order, which said that said that the day-to-day functioning of Prasar Bharati will be carried out by three members of the Board -- CEO B S Lalli, Member (Finance), and Member (Personnel) -- jointly.

Today the Supreme Court Bench said the day-to-day functioning of the board would be in accordance with the Prasar Bharati Act.

The Centre of Public Interest Litigation at the Delhi High Court filed the petition concerning sharing the CEO's powers and alleged irregularities.

Lalli also expressed the desire the probe by the CVC should be done.

Earlier Lalli had moved the Supreme Court challenging the Delhi High Court interim ruling that ordered a CVC inquiry and appointed a former judge to supervise its board meetings.
