An official statement from Star claimed MGMD, a first of its kind programme on Indian satellite news television, brings "eye-opening stories about how access to new economy has made worldwide developmental tools easily available to developing India".

The programme would showcase efforts made by individuals and institutions to make life better for developing India. The Anurradha Prasad and Rajiv Shukla-promoted BAG Films has produced MGMD.
