A salient feature of Lutyen's City and its information and entertainment would soon become a thing of the past.But 'change' being an essence of life - the top echelons of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting believe the new move would only bring in qualitative improvement in the bulletins like clarity of language and perfection in pronunciation.The government decision must be therefore also seen as a step towards "decentralisation" -- giving more role and powers to the regional units run from various state capitals, sources said.The regional bulletins in major Indian languages through state-run All India Radio are all set to be discontinued and a few such units in Delhi's famous Akashvani Bhavan have been virtually shut, sources said here.However, the Sanskrit and Urdu bulletins have been kept untouched.Amongst the remaining regional languages - a few others like Bangla unit will probably have their last bulletin on July 8, 2017 evening, a source said.The government move comes after the suggestion originally mooted in 1990s was endorsed by top officials of the Information and Broadcasting Ministry as well as Prasar Bharati to shift daily bulletins broadcast in regional languages from New Delhi to respective state capitals. Under the decision, Assamese, Odia, Malayalam and Tamil news bulletins are now being broadcast respectively from Guwahati, Bhubaneswar, Thiruvananthapuram and Chennai. This was implemented around March, 2017.The remaining, in Bangla, Gujarati, Marathi, Punjabi, Arunachali, Nepali, Kashmiri and Dogri would alsobe packed off to respective states."Bengali, Tamil or other regional bulletins from AIR, New Delhi station were like part of capital's history. Now the stage will shift to regional centres. The feeling is mixed - some sad, some new excitement as now the language quality can probably see improvement," a source said on the condition of anonymity."Some regional bulletins were immensely popular more their informative value. During the 1971 Bangladesh war of Independence, rural Bengal often witnessed people gathering in front of pan shops or in play ground where a mike would be on giving the listeners the latest update about the war. That was a different era," remarked an official at AIR - whose mother also served the organisation.Sources, however, said the idea to relocate the regional language bulletins is to bring about qualitative improvement in regional bulletins as the news readers and translators settled in Delhi for decades - and a few probably also born and brought up in Delhi - are not in touch with the flavour and the true essence of their mother tongue.Hence, the I&B ministry mandarins and top echelons feel shifting of the bulletins to respective state capitals will help the pronunciation right and also help local talents at the state levels explore the new opportunities. – Web India 123
