New Delhi, Apr 29: The Government today said it has no proposal to provide an insurance scheme for journalists. ''Efforts were made to frame a Group Insurance Scheme for journalists. However, owing to lack of response from the intended beneficiaries, the scheme could not materialise,'' Information and Broadcasting Minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi informed the Lok Sabha during Question Hour.
FAKE CERTIFICATES: As many as 11 scheduled tribe candidates have got government jobs on the basis of fake certificates. Of these, eight are in Doordarshan and one each in AIR, PIB and S and DD. Necessary administrative and legal action have been initiated against the defaulting persons. In few cases after the completion of inquiry, the persons concerned have been dismissed, Mr Dasmunsi said.
