Live India is an Indian Hindi TV channel owned by Broadcast Initiatives Ltd., focusing on news and commentary. The channel came in the limelight for wrong reasons when it conducted a sting operation covering a porn racket by a school teacher which was later proved fake by a high court verdict.[1] It was earlier known as Janmat, when it was focused on "views"; now the channel is called Live India.

In a Rs. 400 million upgrade in August 2007, it opened news bureaus at Ahmedabad, Lucknow, Srinagar, Chandigarh, Bhopal, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Bhubaneswar, Kolkata and Guwahati as well as its earlier offices at Mumbai and Delhi.

Sudhir Chaudhary was the CEO of Live India till July 2012.

Government Ban[edit]

The Indian Government banned the channel for a month due to the false sting. It was banned because it breached the Cable Networks Regulation Act, 1995, by broadcasting an admittedly doctored sting operation.[2]
