It used to be operated from Delhi but in the year 2006, the Centre decided to shift the operations of Doordarshan's 'Kashir' channel back to Srinagar from Delhi after more than 17 years since the outbreak of violence in Kashmir in late 1980s, thus fulfilling a long-standing demand of the people of the Valley. DD Kashir also became a 24-hour channel from 15 August 2000. the channel used to telecast a 14 and half-hour programme daily.
