Popular Doordarshan programme ‘Jaane ka Haque’ based on RTI stories and discussions is perhaps the only TV programme in the country which educates and popularises ‘Right-To-Information Act’ in the country. Doordarshan authorities should share this programme with other TV channels including even private ones in larger interest of people, like has already been done when Doordarshan has been a partner for simultaneous telecast of some TV programmes produced and aired by private producers primarily for some private channel.
It is often seen that ‘Jaane ka Haque’ presently becoming the usual casualty at time of election-season. It should be ensured that ‘Jaane ka Haque’ must not be cancelled even though its time-slot may be changed. Sharing and interchange of TV programmes like Jaane ka Haque can at least be started with Lok Sabha TV and Rajya Sabha TV. It is also high time that Doordarshan may produce a TV serial based on RTI success stories like very popular TV serial ‘Rajni’ of yesteryears which was a very interesting, attractive and educative TV serial for consumer awareness.
