NDTV lays off over 50 people
It is learnt that employees from across departments, including journalists, have been given pink slips
Sep 12, 2012
Dr Prannoy Roy-promoted news broadcasting company NDTV is undergoing an internal restructuring process and the management has decided to lay off close to 3 per cent of its 1,800 strong workforce from across India.
Confirming the development to Business Standard, NDTV Group executive vice chairman KVL Narayan Rao said, “Many companies undergo lot of internal restructuring, and the step has been taken to improve the efficiencies.”
Rao said that the number of people who have been asked to leave is “very minuscule”, or just “three per cent of the total staff strength”. It is learnt that employees from across departments, including journalists, have been given pink slips.
For the quarter ended 30 June, NDTV had posted a standalone net loss of Rs 22.71 crore on a revenue of Rs 82.77 crore.
NDTV has already filed a lawsuit against Indian TV ratings monitoring agency TAM along with its promoters Nielsen, Kantar and WPP for fudging and manipulation of TV ratings.
Earlier in 2009, NDTV had frozen the recruitments and in an internal mail, Roy had said, “The time for complacency is over. Each one of us needs to increase our productivity, our efficiency, our desire to learn and improve. This is the time to streamline our operations, excise any flab that the system may have gained in the boom times and return to being a lean, tough, strong, efficient and compassionate organisation."
