DD Kisan to launch in January 2015

Doordarshan's 'Kisan TV' channel, which would air programmes on agriculture for farmers, is likely to be ready for launch by mid-January next year.
Doordarshan's 'Kisan' channel is one of the new ideas that the Narendra Modi-led NDA government had announced with regard to the public broadcaster.
Earlier in the year, Finance minister Arun Jaitley, who now also holds charge of the I&B ministry, had in his Union Budget 2014 speech, announced a new 24-hour TV channel for farmers that will be dedicated to the agriculture sector, with an outlay of Rs 100 crore.
The channel is meant to provide information to farmers about crops, weather and government facilities etc. It will also have entertainment programmes.
