NDTV India (Hindi: NDTV इंडिया) is a Hindi news channel in India that is owned by New Delhi Television Limited. Noted journalist Vinod Dua has been associated with this channel.[1]

In June 2016 NDTV decided to launch two separate channels called NDTV India and NDTV Spice in the United Kingdom.[2]


NDTV was the brainchild of its Chairman, Prannoy Roy[3] and his wife and Managing Director, Radhika Roy.

Some of the NDTV anchors have held prominent positions in the government. Pankaj Pachauri who was a senior TV anchor and journalist was the Communications Adviser to the former Prime Minister of India dr Manmohan Singh.

In 1988, NDTV's producers produced a news and current affairs show ‘The World This Week’ for Doordarshan. The show proved to be immensely popular and NDTV established its image as a credible private news producer. It moved on to become the sole news content provider and producer for India’s first 24-hour news channel, Star News. Then in 2003, they launched two 24-hour news channels—NDTV 24x7 in English and NDTV India in Hindi. Later they also launched NDTV Profit, a 24-hour business news channel in 2005, which became close to bankruptcy.

The channel received notice from the Information and Broadcasting ministry over its coverage of the Pathankot terrorist attack for allegedly violating norms.[4]
