DD ARUNPRABHA LAUNCHED

Post by VilasG » Sun Mar 17, 2019 12:01 pm

Arunachal Pradesh got its own dedicated 24x7 TV channel, DD Arunprabha, on 9 February 2019.

The channel was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Doordarshan Kendra (DDK) in Itanagar on Saturday. He also inaugurated an airport in Itanagar on the same day.

These projects are part of the government's focus for the development of the North-east region through its "Act East Policy", which aims at reducing the isolation of the region.

"Arunprabha channel will be equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, including a digital satellite news-gathering unit to provide live coverage from remote areas, for 24x7 telecast," information and broadcasting (I&B) secretary Amit Khare said.

The ₹ 60 crore project is part of the ₹ 1,054.52 crore fund approved by the Cabinet on Wednesday for Prasar Bharati's broadcasting infrastructure and network development.
