NA passes PBC amendment bill

The National Assembly has passed the Pakistan Broadcasting Corporation (Amendment) Bill, 2024.

Moving the Bill, Law Minister Azam Nazeer Tarar said the bill is aimed at giving more autonomy to the Board of Radio Pakistan to improve its governance and performance.

Under the bill, the Federal Government shall appoint Director General of Radio Pakistan on the recommendations of the Board.

The constitution of the PBC board has been changed by increasing the independent directors/private members from four to nine, giving them a majority over ex-officio members.
