[Image: DD-India-news-cover-160x90.jpg]MUMBAI: The ministry of information and broadcasting (MIB) has signed an agreement with Bangladesh and South Korea with an aim to strengthen India’s relations with its neighboring countries. Under the agreement, Doordarshan India will be available in those countries and their state channels will be available in India on DD Free Dish.

“India has entered into an agreement with Bangladesh so that DD India will be shown on Bangladesh TV. In return, Bangladesh’s official channel will also be available in India on DD Free Dish. DD Free dish is available in 35 million households,” said I&Bminister Prakash Javadekar.

As a reciprocal gesture, the Government of India has decided to carry BTV World, a channel owned by Bangladesh TV, on the Doordarshan Free Dish which will be available for the viewers of Doordarshan in our country.

At the same time, DD India would be made available in Bangladesh for being viewed by the people in that country. This arrangement is as a result of an MoU signed between Prasar Bharati and Bangladesh TV(BTV) on 7th May, 2019. The channel – BTV World would be of special interest to the viewers of Eastern India.

The decision marks an important watershed in the strengthening of ties between the two countries and follows with an earlier decision taken by the two Governments to co-produce a film on Banga Bandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, which will be directed by the eminent film Director/Producer Shri Shyam Benegal.

The government has also approved the proposal of Prasar Bharati for making available the KBS World, an English 24×7 channel of Government of Republic of South Korea on the DD Free Dish for the Indian viewers. Simultaneously, people of Korea would be able to view DD India in their country.
