The members of the committee include the heads of Prasar Bharati, All India Radio, Doordarshan, a few other babus from the Planning Commission and others. The industry will be represented by Kiran Karnik, Chairman, NASSCOM, A P Parigi, CEO, ENIL (The Times Group); and Rajiv Mishra, COO, BAG Infotainment.
