Port Blair

The All India Radio here is facing the brunt of power failure during news broadcast frequently. AIR in a communication to the media observes that power cuts and load shedding have become common phenomena in our islands hampering work at essential places like Operation theatres in hospitals and during news broadcasting from ‘All India Radio’, Port Blair. Since news and interviews are programmes which need spontaneity and continuity AIR appeals to the concerned officials to make necessary arrangements to stop the power interruption during such programmes so that the news and interviews may be broadcast spontaneously without any power interruption and complete news and matters may reached listeners at the scheduled timings.
