History about Doordarshan

Doordarshan began with a modest experiment in public service telecasting on September 15, 1959. The experiment became a service in 1965 when Doordarshan reached television sets in living rooms in and around New Delhi. The services were extended to Mumbai, Amritsar and seven other cities by 1975. On April 1, 1976, it came under a separate department in the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. In 1982, Doordarshan became a national broadcaster. 

In 1982, the coloured version of Doordarshan began with the live telecast of the Independence Day speech by then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, followed by the colour telecast of the 1982 Asian Games in Delhi. 

Currently, Doordarshan operates 6 national channels and 17 regional channels. National channels include DD National, DD India, DD Kisan, DD Sports, DD Urdu and DD Bharati. On the other hand, DD Arunprabha, DD Bangla, DD Bihar, DD Chandana, DD Girnar, DD Madhya Pradesh, DD Malayalam, DD North East, DD Odia, DD Podhigai, DD Punjabi, DD Rajasthan, DD Sahyagiri, DD Saptagiri, DD Uttar Pradesh, DD Yadagiri, and DD Kashir are its regional channels.
