#1

NEW DELHI: A total of 492 television transmitters and 85 radio transmitters have been added in the last 12 years since Prasar Bharati was formed in 1997.

Thus, the strength of Doordarshan network has increased from 924 at the time of formation of Prasar Bharati to 1416 at present. All India Radio has grown from 299 to 374 as on date.

Andaman and Nicobar Islands is the only area in the country which is not able to receive Doordarshan signals, even through direct-to-home service.

The areas uncovered by terrestrial transmission along with rest of the country have been provided with multi–channel TV coverage through Doordarshan’s free to air (DTH) service “DD Direct Plus”.

A total of 200 new transmitters have been approved in spillover scheme under the 11th Plan to increase the AIR coverage all over the country, Parliament was informed today by Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting S Jagathrakshakan.
