Administration forced to change the sound system at a cost of Rs 50L
Strong frequencies from a private FM radio channel forced the Vidhan Sabha administration to change its decade-old sound system. A sum of Rs 50 lakh was spent by the Vidhan Sabha secretariat on revamping the entire sound system.
The Vidhan Sabha officials accepted that after the recent launch of a private FM radio channel with a tagline ‘ Bajate Raho’, the sound system of the Vidhan Sabha went haywire.
The frequency of this FM radio was so strong that every time sound system of Vidhan Sabha was switched on it started playing the channel songs. The fact that this FM channel was stationed at the building of All India Radio ( AIR) situated on the opposite bank of the river, resulted in compounding the problem as the frequencies emanated from it are very strong in the Vidhan Sabha building.
A flustered Vidhan Sabha administration complained to the Union Information and Broadcasting ministry on the serious issue.
Recently a team of the ministry officials visited the Vidhan Sabha and suggested that the sound system should be changed.
The Vidhan Sabha secretary Jagdish Chandra told The Pioneer that the sound system of Vidhan Sabha has been changed from the old analog pattern to the modern digital pattern.
He said that the problem has been sorted out but added that the transmission of the channel would be stopped during the assembly session if the need arises. Read more posts…
