MUMBAI: Information and Broadcasting (I&B) minister Prakash Javadekar has informed the Rajya Sabha that NaMo TV is not on the ministry of information and broadcasting’s (MIB) list of channels as it was a platform service.

“The ‘NaMo TV’ is not listed in the list of channels of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting as it was a ‘Platform Service’ offered by DTH operators to its subscribers,” Javadekar said in the Rajya Sabha.

NaMo TV was launched on 31st March on direct to home (DTH) platforms as part of its voter outreach. It aims to provide real-time coverage of Modi’s Lok Sabha election campaign. The channel will live broadcast his election rallies and speeches. The service is available on Tata Sky, Airtel Digital TV, Dish TV, and cable TV network Siti Networks.

During election 2019, the Congress and AAP had filed complaints with EC stating that the service is a violation of the Model Code of Conduct. Subsequently, the EC had sought a report from MIB which clarified that NaMo TV is not a licenced channel but a DTH advertisement platform.
