‘PK downloaded via authorised site’

Amidst controversy over Akhilesh Yadav watching allegedly a pirated copy of Amir Khan starrer film PK, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister’s office on Sunday termed as “baseless” the allegation and said the movie was downloaded through an authorised site.

“The screening of PK was done on Club X media server installed at Akhilesh Yadav’s residence. The Club X service enables authorised private screenings of movies at Club X licensed auditorium of its members. Movies can be screened from the date of their theatrical release in India,” an official statement issued by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav’s office said here.

“Movies are delivered to the Club X media servers over a captive satellite network or are physically delivered and are stored in a digitally encrypted form. A licence is required to playback the movie each time and is issued based upon the authorisation received from the content owners,” it said.

Akhilesh writes letter to Jaitley
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has written a letter to Union Finance Minister, suggesting measures to strengthen urban infrastructure facilities and seek release of funds under the JNNURM scheme. In his letter sent to Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, the Chief Minister has requested release of Rs 252.30 crore sanctioned under the JNNURM scheme, an official spokesman said here.

The CM also asked the Union Minister to direct banks to bring credit-debit ratio to 60 per cent as fixed by the Reserve Bank of India. He said at present the CD ratio is only 52 per cent which is less than the ratio fixed by the Central government.
