The beginning of DD Science and India Science channels in New Delhi

In January 2019, India’s Department of Science and Technology (DST) along with Doordarshan launched two science communication initiatives ‘DD Science’ and ‘India Science’ to develop scientific temperament in the country. 

According to Science and Technology Minister Harsh Vardhan’s information, the two channels will broadcast science-based documentaries, studio-based discussions, and virtual walkthroughs of scientific institutions, interviews, and short films.  

DD Science has been allotted a one hour slot on Doordarshan National channel while  India Science is an internet-based science channel. These channels will serve as the first step in creating a national science channel for India.


The channels have been conceived and supported by the Department of Science and Technology and are being implemented and managed by Vigyan Prasar. The two science channels which are milestones in the history of science communication in India are the first step in creating a national science channel for the country. 

While India Science (www.indiascience.in) is already a 24x7 presence, DD Science may also be scaled up to a full-fledged channel in the future.
