New Delhi Television Ltd. (NDTV) - Chairman Speech

Company chairman speech

Dear Shareholders

Thank you all for being with us and supporting us throughout this exciting andimportant year for NDTV. We are progressing rapidly on our path towards becomingIndia’s most significant and respected digital media company. We arevery happy to report that NDTV is still rated as India’s most trustedtelevision media brand. In addition we are now leaders in the future of media: news andcontent on the Internet; ndtv.com has broken new ground again this year and is gainingmore and more followers around the world.

As you are aware NDTV has adhered firmly to the finest principles of integrity - bothin business and in the ethics of journalism. We have reported earlier on the corruptmethods that are widespread in the Indian media scene - and how NDTV will never everindulge in any of these practices. For example every city and every state in our countryhas ‘consultants’ who for a fee guarantee high viewership TRP figures (which inturn fetch higher revenues). NDTV never has and never will engage in any way with these‘consultants’. Nevertheless I am happy to report our viewership figure and ourrevenues have shown a robust and honest growth that we should all be proud of. At NDTV weare following a relatively lonely path of integrity and honesty - and this will pay off asthe media sector matures. Moreover while the new world of digital media and the internethave shortcomings - such as abusive trolling rumour mongering and the propagation ofhate all hidden behind the veil of anonymity - nevertheless the role and opportunitiesfor corrupt practice are less accessible which implies that the path of integrity thatNDTV follows will be more highly rewarded in this new world. It is already happening andwe are happy to highlight the fact that NDTV’s commitment to integrity is eventoday reflected in the highest advertising rates per user/viewer in the news mediasector.

India has the most vibrant questioning and fearless media in the world. It issomething we should all be hugely proud of. And one day - as soft power globally becomesmore important in winning the hearts and minds of people - than the hardware of guns andweaponry - India’s media will play a hugely important global role for our Country.

Thank you dear shareholders once again for being part of the bigger struggle and forfreedom of the press and the independence of the media in our Country.

Radhika Roy and Prannoy Roy

(Executive Co-Chairpersons of NDTV)
