Vision Statement of Friends of Prasar Bharati.
Friends of Prasar Bharati aims to defend and promote All India Radio & Doordarshan in its vital role as India's National and Public Service Broadcaster, to inform, educate and entertain the public.
We demand, to serve its real purposes, All India Radio & Doordarshan should be completely and directly funded by the government.
We oppose all efforts to to compromise its significance and independence by throwing it to the mercy of market forces (corporate forces).
We believe that, monopoly media and media consolidation is the worst that can happen to a democratic country like India.
We believe that equally strong National and Private Broadcasters can co-exist and that is essential for a healthy democratic country.
believe that Public Service Broadcasting in the digital age will also
involve many “non-linear” programmes such as online or on-demand
content, and it is vital that Public Service Broadcasters are able
to communicate on new platforms
We declare that as citizens of this great country it is our legitimate right to have a National and Public service Broadcaster which is autonomous and not influenced by market forces.
