The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed World Television Day on 21st November 1996, acknowledging the significant impact the medium has had on people around the world. In India, television has grown in leaps and bounds since the inception of Doordarshan in 1959, evolving from a single, state-owned channel to a diverse industry with countless private channels catering to varied preferences. Apart from being an essential source of entertainment, television has served as an indispensable tool for education, creating awareness about social issues, and empowering citizens with its widespread reach and influence on the masses.

Seminars, workshops, and panel discussions on the role of television in societal development are organized by media houses, educational institutions, and industry veterans. Recognizing the power of television in their lives, audiences in India are encouraged to engage in discussions about the importance of ethical journalism, responsible content creation, and maintaining diversity in programming.
