Today, on the 60th anniversary of Doordarshan, I sincerely express my heartfelt gratitude and sincere thanks to all our viewers for all their love and support. Though, Doordarshan had a modest beginning with an experimental telecast starting in Delhi on 15th September 1959, today it reaches every nook and corner of India.

Generations of Indians have grown watching Doordarshan and it is indeed a part of our DNA. When it comes to the credibility of News, dissemination of public service information, providing wholesome entertainment and instilling scientific temper, Doordarshan has always stood first. The proud days of Ramayana, Mahabharata, Hum Log, Buniyad, Malgudi Days, Shaktiman, VikramaurBetal, Circus, Udan and Rajani will always be cherished and remembered. From there to today’s high-tech coverages of National and International events, Doordarshan has time and again showcased its prowess in impactful public service programming.

It is with your love and support which has enabled Doordarshan to play a pivotal role in India’s broadcasting history. Doordarshan is in its transformation stage and therefore our vision is of a complete transformative ideology. This primarily includes the understanding of what Doordarshan viewers want.

On 60th Anniversary of DD, today Honorable Union Minister Shri Prakash Javdekar released a special poem written by renowned Poet AalokShrivastav and rendered by legendary Shri Amitabh Bachchan. The Honorable Union Minister also released a special postal stamp and Doordarshan Booklet.

I take this opportunity to thank my entire team for making Doordarshan reach one and all, I request you to keep doing your best to make Doordarshan a formidable force in the broadcasting arena. Once again a heartfelt thank you to all our viewers for their constant love. We look forward to your continuous support.
