Digitalisation in Focus Again

The CW Games are over and everything went off very well. During those twelve days people forgot about corruption, falling bridges and snakes in the village. All they saw was grand opening and closing ceremonies and an excellent performance by our sports persons bringing home a never expected 101 medals tally, not to talk of some world records and many national records being broken. Even the live HD broadcast, done for the first time in India was lauded by the international community. It is another thing that hardly anyone saw the Games in HD in our own country. It would have been a great experience, if government had taken some steps to promote it about six months ago. Now is the time to open the cupboards and reveal the skeletons. Prasar Bharti is already in the news having favoured SIS Live in many ways in their contract for the HD broadcasts. Many heads may roll now although Mr BS Lalli, CEO of Prasar Bharti has refuted all charges and stated that due permission was taken from the Ministry for all contractual terms.
