AIR to install transmitters to strengthen broadcast in border areas: Venkaiah


Information & Broadcasting Minister Venkaiah Naidu on Thursday said that the All India Radio will commission two new short-wave digital transmitters for broadcast of its content across Afghanistan-Pakistan region by end of August. In a review meeting with various representatives of Union Territories in India, he said that these digital transmitters of 100 kW power will be installed in Delhi. He said that new transmitters will also be installed at Andaman and Nicobar, Daman and Puducherry to enhance AIR’s FM outreach in these areas. In addition, he said that UTs should appoint nodal officers who can ensure effective implementation of Cable TV Act in order to restrict airing of objectionable content and unauthorised channels. These nodal officers will assist the DMs in curbing such unauthorised channels. These initiatives come at a time when the Ministry has been cracking down on the broadcast of unauthorised channels especially in border areas. Earlier this year, the Ministry had also asked Jammu and Kashmir state government to take action to stop unauthorised and anti-Indian Pakistani and Saudi Arabian channels being broadcast in parts of Kashmir.
