Brief History of Doordarshan

Television made a modest beginning in India on September, 15, 1959, when the first experimental centre at Delhi with a small transmitter of 05 kilowatt was inaugurated by President Rajendra Prasad.

The equipment was given by the Philips India Ltd., who had set-up closed circuit television at an Industrial exhibition organized at Delhi. The coverage range was 40 kilometers around the capital in the beginning. The service was operated from an improvised studio and programmes were telecast twice a week (Thursday and Friday) for duration of one hour per day.

Initially, 21 sets were installed in the rural areas in the neighborhood of Delhi subsequently; United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) provided 50 sets which were also installed in rural areas. About 180 teleclubs were set up at the community viewing centers.
