Doordarshan annual awards, conceived with an eye to promote creativity in public service broadcasting will be presented today by vice-president Shri. Krishna Kant. The awards have been instituted in more than 30 categories of in-house productions.

Prasar Bharati CEO Anil Baijal hopes that the spirit of competition would help increase the quantity and quality of in-house productions.

The awards would be given away at a three-hour ceremony at Siri Fort, attended by the information and broadcasting minister Sushma Swaraj and minister of state for information and broadcasting Ramesh Bais.
