DD Gangtok Kendra commences beaming via satellite
#1
NEW
DELHI:
The
local
programmes
from
the
Gangtok
Kendra
of
Doordarshan
were
uplinked
to
satellite
on
15
September.
Doordarshan
director
general
C.
Lalrosanga
was
present
on
the
occasion
and
welcomed
Gangtok to what he called the
‘satellite club’ by coming at par with
other Northeastern states.
The telecast of local programming of
DD Gangtok has also been increased by
two hours from today, Lalrosanga told
Indiantelevision.com in a telephonic
message.
The development comes even as a
proposal for separate 24-hour
Doordarshan channels for each state
in the Northeast is pending with the
Information and Broadcasting
Ministry.
Although DD has a 24x7 Northeast
channel at present, it covers all the
states with the result that not
enough time is available to the
programming of each state.
While Prasar Bharati had initially
proposed three more channels for the
Northeast around two years earlier,
this had been revised to one channel
per state late last year.
It was proposed that since
Doordarshan had infrastructure worth
several hundred crores in each of the
states, it would require around Rs 6 -
10 crore for initiating the production
of software of these channels.
However, it would then require
regular funding to keep the channels
running.
