DD invites bids to conduct e-auction of vacant slots on Free Dish
On behalf of Prasar Bharati, Doordarshan has invited technical and financial bids from interested agencies to conduct e-auction of Direct To Home (DTH) vacant slots of DD Free Dish platform.
Prasar Bharati has decided to hire an agency for providing a secured e-auctioning platform to bring more transparency in the auctioning and process and allotment of DTH vacant slots of Free Dish to private channels on annual or monthly basis, which would enable legitimate bidders to participate in auction through internet using digital certificates (DSC). No physical presence of bidders would be required at DD premises at the time of bidding.
Offered e-auction platform should be envisaged not only for time saving, but bring in transparency, cost effectiveness and efficiency in allotment of vacant slots of Free Dish, which would fetch better revenue for Doordarshan.
Interested bidders are expected to submit the “Financial and Technical” bids along with an Earnest Money Deposit (EMD) of Rs 1 lakh through demand draft/bankers cheque drawn in favour of “PB, BCI, DG: DD New Delhi” on any scheduled commercial bank payable at New Delhi to be enclosed with the technical bid. The last date for submission of the bids is 10 April, 2015. The opening of the financial bids will be intimated later to all technically qualified bidders.
