[RxPG] Thiruvananthapuram, March 25 - Not many will refuse a dish TV as a gift. But that's just what employees of the Indian Space Research Organisation - across the country have done.

A. Antony, president of the Liquid Propulsion Systems Centre Staff Association at the ISRO here, said the management had asked if they would like to get dish TVs as gifts for their extraordinary contribution.

'Since today everyone has a cable connection which for some households comes for a monthly subscription at Rs.60, a huge majority of the staff said they would like to have something that would be more useful,' said Antony.

The last time the ISRO employees got a gift in kind was almost a decade ago when they were given wristwatches. The employees are given a cash bonus of Rs.3,000 each as part of a 'launch campaign allowance'.

In the three units of ISRO in Thiruvananthapuram, there are about 6,000 employees.

In lieu of dish TVs, reports indicate that the most likely gift would be a gold coin, costing around Rs.3,000 - almost the same as the cost of a dish TV.
