Janam TV to go air on April 19

Thiruvananthapuram, Feb 18 : Much awaited Janam TV, promoted by a group of NRIs and Indian businessmen, will go on air from Kerala on April 19. Addressing a press conference here, Channel Chairman and film director Priyadarshan said the new channel would give equal importance to news and entertainment, and is aimed at promoting nationalism and culture.

The inauguration ceremony would be held at Kaloor International Stadium in Kochi in the presence of eminent personalities including spiritual leader and founder of Art of Living Foundation Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Stating that the new channel would definitely be a new experience for the viewers, he said the Channel would project positive things as now-a-days news channels are projecting more negatives
than positives.

Speaking on the occasion, Janam TV Managing Director P Vishwarupan said the Channel is supported by the most modern technology and will be the first high definition channel in Malayalam with high quality display. It would use ‘INTELSAT-17’for telecast.

The Malayalees all over the world would be able to enjoy the Janam TV programmes from the day of its launching, he added. Channel Director U S Krishnakumar said the about 5,000 share holders have taken shares ranging from Rs 25,000 to a maximum of Rs five lakh.  ‘Lot of individuals and organisations are approaching us to invest huge amounts in the channel. But we restricted the maximum investment upto five lakh only, so that the values for which we stand will not be compromised,’ he said.

He also said the Channel has a strong financial backing with its paid-up capital nearing Rs 50 crore, which is the authorised capital of the company. Headquartered in Kerala Capital, Janam TV, launched by Janam Multimedia Ltd, would have its programme studio in Aluva, Channel CEO and Executive Editor Rajesh G Pillai said.

To a question, the Chairman said the Channel has no backing of the BJP or the RSS.  Claiming that the Channel would fill the vacuum between the reality and the common man, he said it will play an active role in protecting the nation’s interest by impartial reporting and inculcating nationalism and patriotic thinking among the people.
