Govt strengthening DD’s reach in border areas to counter Pak TV signal

Strengthening TV coverage in border areas of the country to counter signal from across the border is a priority for Prasar Bharti, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) has informed the Lok Sabha.

Responding to a question in the Lower House on the steps being taken by the government for setting up high-power TV transmitters in border areas to check anti-India propaganda on Pakistan television, the MIB stated, “Special packages for expansion and improvement of Doordarshan services in the border areas have been formulated from time to time.”

“At present, 242 TV transmitters of varying power are functioning in border districts of the country, including 105 transmitters of varying power functioning in the districts along the Indo-Pak border,” the ministry submitted.

The ministry also informed the Lok Sabha that for the further strengthening of Doordarshan terrestrial TV coverage in border areas, projects for setting up of new high-power TV transmitters in Jammu & Kashmir have been approved.
The four high-power transmitters are: HPT, Green Ridge; HPT, Himbotingla; HPT, Natha Top (Patnitop) and HPT, Rajouri (DD National & DD News)

All areas not covered by terrestrial transmission (border areas along with rest of the country), have been provided with multi-channel TV coverage through Doordarshan’s free to air DTH service-- DD Free Dish.

“DTH signals can be received anywhere in the country, including border areas, with the help of small-sized dish receive units,” the ministry stated.
