MUMBAI: A large part of the Indian news television fraternity is expected to be huddled in New Delhi's Taj Palace Hotel come 25 March. The occasion: the sixth Indiantelevision.com News Television Summit which is expected to commence at 11 am and which will be followed by Indiantelevision.com's NT Awards in the evening.

"Getting out of the Squeeze - Learning to live in a digitised India" is the theme of this year's summit. A keynote opening address by Ministry of Information & Broadcasting Secretary Uday Kumar Varma has been lined up and will be followed by three panel discussions covering the business and regulatory framework in a digitising India, innovative use of technology in the news broadcast space and the emerging trends in prime time news and the importance of TV news anchors.

The News Television Summit 2013 is endorsed by the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting and is supported by ABP News and ABP Majha. The NT Awards are presented by LR Active Oil while Saakshi TV, TV9, CNBC TV18, CNBC Awaaz, and Aaj Tak have also pitched in as partners.

"The news TV industry has been grappling with an uber-competitive environment with limited revenue streams in almost every language segment," says Indiantelevision.com Group CEO and Editor-in-Chief Anil Wanvari. "DAS and DTH can potentially help specific segments of the news TV industry generate new revenue streams in terms of subscription and premium niche news channels in the medium to long term. Of course the transition will throw up its own challenges."

Sharma, Puthiya Thalaimurai TV news director S.
