July 12: Despite the ongoing recession, financial year 2008-09 proved to be the year of boom for television channels as over 111 satellite channels got the nod of Union information and broadcasting ministry to begin operations.

According to the annual report of the I&B ministry the year 2008-09 counted for almost one-fourth of the total 394 TV channels that were granted licence by the ministry till March 2009.

"The number of new TV channels has gained momentum due to liberalisation and enhanced enthusiasm shown by the broadcasters to catch a share of the huge entertainment & media industry in India," the annual report states.

Official sources stated that several applications for uplinking have been received and proposals for 145 private satellite TV channels for permission to uplink from India are at various stages of scrutiny. It may be recalled that the I&B Ministry had also permitted 22 more channels to go on air last month.

The information and broadcasting ministry annual report pointed out that the number of news and current affairs channels, constitute 211 of the total 394, have outnumbered channels of all other genres put together.
