dated August 30, 1954: TV for India

Dr. B.V. Keskar, Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting, said in Chandigarh on August 28 that, under the Second Five-Year Plan for broadcasting, it was intended to introduce television by 1956-57. He told newsmen that technical experts were studying the new processes of television. Dr. Keskar said Madras and Bombay would be provided with high-power transmitters for broadcasting certain programmes independently for all-India purposes, thus eliminating the necessity of depending on relays through the Delhi station of AIR. Dr. Keskar emphasised the need for providing low-cost radio sets in the country and said efforts were being made to produce low-cost radio sets in certain States. AIR was also trying to evolve a radio set of its own, he added.
