According to Mittal, DD News is the top news channel in the country. With digitisation, the real figures of viewership for Doordarshan would be captured.
Mittal also questioned the quality of content on kids channels and the value systems they promoted. With digital media seeing the fastest growth, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) had set up a new media wing.
Though new media posed several challenges, Mittal maintained that the best form of regulation is self-regulation. The government was trying to get back the original copy of the first ‘Devdas’ film which is now in Bangladesh, he said. Mittal said that the Rs 200-crore national museum of cinema would be thrown open soon.
