A Memorandum of Understanding was today signed between Doordarshan & IGNOU regarding the transmission of Four Gyan Darshan Educational channels. The Gyan Darshan Bouquet of Educational TV Channels is an educational media initiative of MHRD in collaboration with the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB), Prasar Bharati & ISRO with IGNOU as the nodal agency.

Gyan Darshan ran successfully till 2nd June 2014 as a must carry channel for educational programmes. GD was shut down by ISRO to facilitate its migration from INSAT 3C to GSAT-10. IGNOU now needs to apply for a fresh Licence to start the uplinking of its Channels for GSAT-10 Satellite. Under the Up-linking & Down-linking Guidelines of the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting, IGNOU is not eligible for the grant of a Licence. IGNOU requested Doordarshan to apply for the necessary Licence and permissions for the Gyan Darshan channels. Through this MoU, Doordarshan has acceded to the request of IGNOU and agreed to apply for and obtain the necessary Licence and permissions as are required for the telecast of Gyan Darshan channels from IGNOU Earth Station, Delhi to operate in C-band from GSAT-10.

Speaking on the occasion, Ms. Supriya Sahu, Director General, Doordarshan said, “ I am happy that we have signed this MOU with IGNOU and joined hands with a premier
institution like IGNOU. This partnership would ensure that the educational channels of IGNOU reach and benefit millions of students across the country. I think this is one of
the most outstanding initiatives in the field of Public Broadcasting”. Prof. Ravindra Kumar, Vice-Chancellor, IGNOU said, “Gyandarshan has always been a flagship programme for IGNOU and educational community. Today we (IGNOU & DD) are both happy and enormously excited that Gyandarshan has once again
become a reality. Our grateful thanks to Ms. Supriya Sahu, DG, DD for her kind support in reviving Gyandarshan”.

DD Free Dish (फ्री डिश) के जरिए मार्केट के बड़े हिस्से पर काबिज होंगे : श्री जवाहर सरकार

DD Free Dish (फ्री डिश) के जरिए मार्केट के बड़े हिस्से पर काबिज होंगे : श्री जवाहर सरकार

सौजन्य से : www.samachar4media.com

प्रसार भारती के CEO जवाहर सरकार ने DD Free Dish को आम आदमी के लिए बेहतर विकल्‍प बताते हुए खुलासा किया कि वह 59 चैनलों से बढ़ाकर जल्‍द ही इसके चैनलों की संख्‍या 112 करने जा रहे हैं।
DD Free Dish (फ्री डिश) के जरिए मार्केट के बड़े हिस्से पर काबिज होंगे : श्री जवाहर सरकार
Doordarshan Official Logo

प्रस्‍तुत हैं जवाहर सरकार से समाचार4मीडिया ब्‍यूरो के साथ बातचीत के कुछ अंश :

क्‍या terrestrial TV से प्रसार भारत को नुकसान हो रहा है ?  
यहां नुकसान जैसी कोई बात ही नहीं है क्‍योंकि हम बैलेंस शीट के सिद्धांत में विश्‍वास ही नहीं रखते हैं। जब भी आप कोई चीज मुफ्त में देते हैं तो आप यह नहीं कहते हैं कि मैं कैसे तुम्‍हें चीजें कितने फ्री में दे रहा हूं। Terrestrial TV के अपने दिन थे, पर अब ये काफी नीचे जा रहा है। दो साल पहले दूरदर्शन में किसी को इसका संज्ञान नहीं था। मैंने इसे समझा क्‍योंकि मैंने आंकड़ों का अध्‍ययन किया। हमें एक गरीब आदमी या एक सामान्‍य आदमी के लिए किसी ऐसे विकल्‍प की जरूरत थी। और यह विकल्‍प अब फ्री डिश के रूप में सामने आ रहा है।

Free Dish (फ्री डिश) की उपलब्‍धता को कैसे बढ़ाया जा रहा है?
Free Dish सिर्फ लगभग 2000 रुपये का है। अभी इसके 59 चैनल हैं और यदि हम इसके चैनलों की संख्‍या 112 तक बढ़ा देते हैं तो आप Hindi Discovery जैसे चैनल भी देख सकते हैं और इसके लिए हम प्रयास कर रहे हैं। इसके बाद आपको किसी भी चीज की ज्‍यादा जरूरत नहीं रह जाती है। क्‍या सभी के पास free-to-air (FTA) का विकल्‍प था, पर Free Dish ने इसी बात को अपने ध्‍यान में रखा था।
