The Hindu - - CHENNAI - Staff Re­porter

The Tamil Nadu Chin­nathi­rai Iyakku­nar­gal Sangam (TANCIS) or­gan­ised a protest at Chep­auk on Sun­day, de­mand­ing that as­sis­tant di­rec­tors work­ing on projects for the small screen should have a stan­dard pay struc­ture.

“We have been ap­peal­ing to the Pro­duc­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion for tele­vi­sion projects to en­sure that a stan­dard pay is fixed for as­sis­tant, as­so­ciate and codi­rec­tors. So far, they have been re­ceiv­ing re­mu­ner­a­tion that vary across projects and there is no uni­form sys­tem,” said Tha­la­p­a­thy, pres­i­dent of TANCIS.

Ac­tor and Di­rec­tor K. Bhag­yaraj who lent his sup­port to the as­so­ci­a­tion, said that it was nec­es­sary to bring in a stan­dard sys­tem.

“I have ap­pealed to the pro­duc­ers to hold talks with the as­sis­tant di­rec­tors and other mem­bers of TANCIS so that a so­lu­tion can be reached,” he said.
