Ratna De Nag asks Questions on Akashvani and Doordarshan
Though the telecasts of Akashvani and Doordarshan are different, in the growth of private channels in the State, there is a need to make the Akashvani and Doordarshan more relevant, impartial, informative and at the same time, available in both urban and rural areas, even in the remotest areas in our country. Otherwise, Akashvani and Doordarshan will fade away in the future.
Madam, having said that, would the Minister briefly state about the telecasting of educational programmes across the country? And the efforts made by the ministry in the last four years to take Akashvani and Doordarshan to the international arena by popularising the telecasting of popular and informative programmes?
