MUMBAI: Ladakhi News Bulletins are extremely popular among the people in Leh and Ladakh region as there are hardly any private channels telecasting programmes in Ladakhi.  Doordarshan is the only source of Ladakhi news for the people of the region.  DDK, Leh which started its telecast in the year 2000 has been producing and telecasting several programmes in Ladakhi.  As the world’s highest TV station, DDK, Leh has been fulfilling regional aspirations in spite of many challenges in the region.  The regional telecast, which takes place everyday between 6.00 p.m to 7.30 p.m. in Ladakhi is transmitted through  a network of 92 Terrestrial transmitters including 13 HPTs, 13  LPTs and 66  VLPTs.  

Programmes of DDK Leh cover various aspects of local News and Current Affairs as well as local cuisine, life style, culture and heritage.  With increase in the popularity of  satellite transmission, it has become important to augment the terrestrial transmission services with the availability of Ladakhi programmes on satellite mode also so that programmes get a national foot print and are accessible to a large number of people not only in Ladakh but also elsewhere in India.

It has been a long pending demand of people from the region that the Ladakhi regional service be made available on satellite platform.  Doordarshan, Prasar Bharati has decided to fulfil this regional aspiration by providing a Prime time slot to Ladakhi News and Current Affairs and other programmes initially through a half-an-hour slot on DD-Kashir, which is a satellite channel from 10th September, 2018 from 6.30 p.m. to 7.00 p.m.  This would enable accessibility of Ladakhi regional service on all DTH Platforms viz., DD Freedish, Tatasky, Dish TV, Videocon d2h, Airtel, Reliance Digtial TV, Sun Direct and Cable Services etc. as DD Kashir is mandatorily carried on all these platforms as per the direction of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.

The Member of Parliament of the region Shri Thupstan Chhewang had met Smt. Supriya Sahu, Director General, Doordarshan during her visit to Leh and requested for providing a satellite platform to Ladakhi programmes for their wider dissemination.

People of Leh and Ladakh can now tune in to watch their favourite Ladakhi regional service including Ladakhi News Bulletin from 6.30 p.m.  to 7.00 p.m. wherein 6.30 p.m. to 6.45 p.m. has been allocated for programmes of varied genres in Ladakhi and 6.45 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. has been earmarked for Ladakhi News Bulletin.
