A new regional channel for Rajasthan

Indian entertainment network Zee Media Corporation has today launched a new regional channel – Zee Rajasthan Plus, bringing the network’s total number of channels to 34.

Rapid TV News reports that Zee Rajasthan Plus will be based in Jaipur, and run by regional head. The channel will broadcast in Hindi and Rajasthani, and provide an eclectic mix of programming – including both fiction and non-fiction shows covering travel, automobiles, real estate, shopping, food and investments.

There will be news bulletins covering regional, national and international news, as well as half-hour long news programmes. Journalists will be based in the major cities of Rajasthan, and the channel will also be able to feed on news from Zee News bureaux across India.

A lunchtime film will also feature at weekends, along with popular Zee TV shows. The channel will also, in the future, showcase commissioned content and localised programming highlighting Rajasthani culture.

“The idea is to initially focus its distribution push on Rajasthan, and then move into other states,” Alok Agrawal, CEO, Zee Media Corporation, told

“Our whole effort is to bring people from different walks of life, together, on the channel,” he added.
