Rs.100-crore scheme to counter propaganda in Kashmir

"There are reports that anti-India propaganda is received in the state of Jammu and Kashmir from across the border. Several programmes have been mounted by All India Radio (AIR) and Doordarshan (DD) to counter such propaganda,” Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni told parliament in response to a question.

The minister added that AIR and DD were improving their coverage in Jammu and Kashmir and other border areas by strengthening their network.   

"The government has approved a scheme amounting to Rs.100 crore for strengthening the transmission of broadcasting signals in border areas of J&K,” she told the Rajya Sabha.
