There is insufficient evidence to verify that the overall claim.
DD free dish is India’s Free Direct-To-Home Service launched in 2004 and owned by Prasar Bharati. The DD free dish has a capacity of 104 channels and 40 radio channels that are free for the general public. The channels are usually involved in the auction for purchasing the slots in the dish and pay around 7 to 10 crores to Prasar Bharati to widen their reach to remote areas.
However, there is no report of the case being filed by Prasar Bharati or incriminating evidence to say that there was a scam. Further details on the matter are awaited, including the government's response to enquires made by news laundry.
