Prasar Bharati makes DD-Bharati the third must carry channel in the Hindi belt

Prasar Bharati has issued a notification making its newly launched channel DD-Bharati the third mandatory channel in the Hindi speaking areas. DD Bharati replaces the DD News channel as one of the must carry channels in these areas.

The Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act of 1995, provides for three mandatory channels of Doordarshan to be shown on prime band. The cable operators are bound by law to show DD National, DD Metro and one more channel of Doordarshan on prime band. Till recently they were required to show DD News as the third must carry channel in Hindi belt and the regional language channel of Doordarshan in other States and Union Territories.

Following the new notification, the DD Bharati channel is to be shown compulsorily by the cable operators in Delhi, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Uttaranchal, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Goa and Andaman & Nicobar Islands. In Sikkim, DD North East Channel has been made the third must carry channel. In other states and union territories, the language channel of the respective region will be shown as before. The cable operators have the freedom to show any other DD channels, over and above the mandatory three.

The recently launched DD Bharti is has three dedicated slots- health in the morning, children in the day and art and culture at the evening prime time. The channel is also planning a series on Indian Classical music with telecast of a "jugalbandi" series featuring leading exponents of different fields of music. The first of the 13 episode series goes on air on Thursday, the 7th February 2002.

The series conceived by cultural serial Producer Gyan Seth, will be anchored by veteran sitar exponent Ustad Vilayat Khan. The jugalbandhi series will present 26 artistes from different gharanas, performing in the backdrop of historical monuments, capturing the different moods of ragas.
