With the Union Ministry of Information and Broadcasting continuing to drag its feet on the Delhi Assembly’s proposal to launch its independent TV channel, the assembly has gone ahead and appointed its own team to broadcast live proceedings of the House.

Speaker Ram Niwas Goel had earlier said the government would resort to telecasting proceedings via YouTube and local cable channels if the Centre does not respond to the proposal.

The feed was uploaded by the team on the assembly page as a webcast. Channels were barred from recording proceedings as the live feed was provided to them by the team.

“It is an outsourced five-camera set-up. The procedure is same as that of Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha channels. They have an internal set-up whereas we outsourced the work by hiring professionals. This goes on our assembly page as a webcast,” said assembly secretary Prasanna Kumar Suryadevara.

Goel added, “We will upload the feed on YouTube and put it up as a webcast on the assembly page. The feed which will be given to other channels will have the Delhi Vidhan Sabha logo. All feeds will be sent from our set-up from now on,” added Goel.

In November last year, the speaker has written to the union ministry seeking approval to set up the channel on the lines of Lok Sabha TV and Rajya Sabha TV. When asked if any communication was received from the ministry, Goel said they have got a letter of acknowledgment.
