Please refer to your letter dated 06/07/2015 on the captioned subject.

In this connection, it is stated that every effort is being made to incorporate a News Story in the Regional News Bulletin supported by visuals/bytes based on the news value of the story besides maintaining the picture quality. However, since there is every scope for further improving the quality and content delivery of news bulletins aired by the RNU in panaji, your suggestion has been forwarded to the concerned officers in Doordarshan Kendra, Panaji, with suitable advice.

In view of the above reply, your petition stands disposed off.

I agree with Mathew & I'm sure once we start a satellite Konkani channel we Goans would again fight over script & dialect to be chosen. Seriously it is time for Goemcars to get up and rationalize themselves.

Goa is still undeveloped. Goa till date does not have its own Satellite Channel. Kerala and Tamil Nadu have highest numbers of Satellite Channels. When Goa will have its own Satellite Channel? Goa must have atleast 2 Satellite Channels (News and Entertainment).
