News18 India: Epitomising the spirit of 'Danke Ki Chot Par'


News18 India, the Hindi general news channel from Network18, was re-launched in November 2016 along with a revamp of its programming line-up. In line with its new tagline ‘Danke Ki Chot Par’, the channel has consistently broken several exclusive stories on a variety of pressing and relevant issues which has forced the authorities to take stock of the situation and promise action.




Over the past few months, News18 India has telecast numerous special investigative reports and stories. While ‘Operation Namak Haraam’ exposed top Pakistani artists living in India involved in large scale black money transactions, ‘Surgical Strikes ka Saboot’ had a police officer in PoK admitting that strikes were carried out by the Indian Army in September 2016. With a sting operation on UP police, the channel exposed the deep rooted corruption within the state police even after multiple steps were taken by the new BJP government in a bid to make the state corruption free. Following the telecast of the story, Commissioner of Uttar Pradesh Police, Sulkhan Singh took cognizance of the issue and assured that action will be taken against the culprits. Similarly, State Health Minister of Uttar Pradesh launched a probe and suspended two doctors after News18 India exposed malpractises by the doctors in the government hospitals in the state.
