DD Bharati ignored by Kolkata operators

Operators in Kolkata are not following the Union ministry of information & broadcasting directive to put DD Bharati channel on prime band. Operators under RPG Netcom and Siticables are claiming that there is no demand from viewers for this channel.

Officials of both the signal providers were tight-lipped on the issue. According to sources, RPG Netcom had taken DD News off the air a long time back as it was not popular with the viewers, but resumed beaming it from December last year as a test run for DD Bharati. DD Bharati was pulled out in favour of Channel I of Bangladesh. When some technical problems cropped up regarding the channel, it was taken off and DD Bharati was brought back. Frankly speaking, DD Bharati has no such demand, opined the officials.

RPG Netcom had instead introduced some new channels — SPLASH for children and SN — following the dispute over showing the Zee-Turner package. The officials claimed the company has not got any circular from the I&B ministry requesting a prime band slot for DD Bharati.
