Over 5 months after bids were invited and 3 months since agencies were shortlisted, Doordarshan (DD) has cancelled the tender for the channel packaging work of DD Kashir. The tender has been cancelled due to administrative reasons and bidders could collect the earnest money and processing fee paid by them.

DD Kashir had issued a tender for April but had made some changes following some feedback and changes made by DD Directorate General, particularly relating to the payment mode. DD Kashir was launched in the year 2003 to show the richness, variety, and diversity of local culture to Jammu & Kashmir (J&K) viewers.
