NEW DELHI: Processes at this channel may be slow, but expected to be steady -- and may pick up pace.

Doordarshan has invited proposals for channel packaging for DD Kisan, almost 30 months after the launch of the channel on 26 May, 2015.

The issues of India’s agriculture sector and related jobs, on which around 62 per cent of the world’s second-most populous country relies, often take a backseat on television shows and discussions. DD Kisan, which has tie-ups with the India Meteorological Department (IMD) and the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), seeks to address these problems.

Proposals for packaging of the channel, available on all cable and DTH platforms, will be selected by an e-tendering process. There will be a pre-bid meeting on 9 October 2017. Interested parties have been asked to apply by 23 October 2017 with their bids. Technical bids will be opened the next day.

Online registration shall be done on e-tendering website www.tenderwizard.com/PB and, in general, activation of registration may take 24 hours or more subject to the submission of all relevant documents required in the process.

The packaging work for the channel, which was allocated a sum of Rs 800 million for the current fiscal year, as mentioned in this RFP Document should start within four weeks from the date of signing of contract.

Tender format and tender document are available on http://www.tenderwizard.com/PB, e-tender link in Doordarshan website, http://www.ddindia.gov.in/, and e-procurement portal (CPP) www.eprocure.gov.in.
