Doordarshan TV Transmitters Will Now be Turned to All India Radio Set Ups by Prasar Bharati

Closed TV Transmitter set ups of the Doordarshan will now be turned to All India Radio set ups by the Prasar Bharati as part of its efforts to rationalise its set ups. This is a part of the public broadcaster’s plan of transferring the set up of Doordarshan kendras across the country which are not currently broadcasting and are closed.

On closure of the DD set ups, the additional staff who were earlier deployed at those centres would be transferred to the AIR stations for effective broadcasting as per the requirements of the posts.

At present, there are 635 TV transmitters, 612 analog and 23 digital of varying capacities located in different parts of country. This also includes backward and rural areas of the country.

All India Radio and Doordarshan were the media units of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. They became constituents of Prasar Bharati on November 1997.

Doordarshan’s free to air DTH Service DD Free Dish covers the entire country and presently carries 94 SD TV channels.
