The ministry has approached the HRD Ministry to provide it with one channel from its free-to-air DTH bouquet called 'Swayam Prabha'. The Law Ministry has already started the leg work to create a bank of programmes for the proposed channel.
It has invited entries for short films on legal literacy. It plans to hold a legal literacy video contest to get the best of short films. During the UPA rule, it had planned a channel dedicated to the Supreme Court.
But as the apex court had reservations on recording of its proceedings, the idea was shelved. The ministry is considering hiring leading Bollywood directors to produce programmes for the proposed project.
"The selected quality entries will get space on the law and legal studies channel of the Swayam Prabha to be telecast for wider dissemination and viewership," the ministry spokesperson said.
