New Delhi, May 6 (UNI) Press Information Bureau will be issuing new electronic press accreditation card valid for two years to journalists from now onwards.
The electronic card has security features like electronic signature of PIB and Home Ministry officials and is tamper proof. It will be colour coded in four categories-- yellow for correspondents, pink for cameramen, white for technicians and blue for editors.
This card will replace the older PIB Press Card. The step will go a long way in avoiding the annual exercise of renewal for all nationally accredited journalists, an official release said here.
Pr DG (M&C) Deepak Sandhu delivered the first batch of such cards to mediapersons last evening.
PIB is the nodal agency at the national level, which gives accreditation to press persons. Over 2000 press persons in different categories will benefit from this new service.
