The intention of the Rs 50-crore business news channel, CNBC TV-18 to float a Hindi channel has been on the anvil for a while now. The idea is also to reach out to audiences in smaller towns. In its current operations, CNBC TV-18 hosts a Hindi band. It is learnt that CNBC doesn't intend to discontinue this band with the coming of the new channel.

The expectation from the new agency is not only to create an identity of the new channel that keeps it differentiated from CNBC TV-18 English news channel but also at the same time, give the channel a space in the current plethora of Hindi news channels.
