Is there a limit for Nepotism?

"The same year, with his father heading the information and broadcasting ministry, Rahul launched Integral Production. Pramod Mahajan, Rahul and Rekha allegedly had shares in the company. Pramod Mahajan was accused of using his influence to get Doordarshan to slot the countdown show, Truck Dhina Dhin, for his son’s production house. It ran into problems as the company was accused of non-payment to Prasar Bharati. The company did not make the payment of Rs 5 crores to Prasar Bharati.

The then director of Integral Productions, Irfaan Khan, had gone on record admitting that the company owed Rs 5.10 crores to DD. His excuse for non-payment was that the company could not "sell the planned advertisement slots for 31 episodes of the sponsored serial". It was also alleged that the extension was given to the serial by violating the laid down norms."
