Rajya Sabha TV (RSTV) is an Indian cable television network channel owned and operated by Rajya Sabha that covers the proceedings of Rajya Sabha (the Upper House of the Parliament of India).[1] Apart from telecasting live coverage of Rajya Sabha proceedings, RSTV also brings incisive analysis of parliamentary affairs. While focusing on current national and international affairs, it provides a platform for knowledge-based programmes for the discerning viewer. The channel offers special attention to legislative business undertaken by the Parliament.

Conscious of its role as a public broadcaster, RSTV has conceptualised programmes on the basis of the vibrant relationship between Parliament and the people of India. It aims at providing an objective perspective on national and international affairs to the people. RSTV touches upon all the aspects of political, economic, social and cultural life of the people, while promoting scientific temper among masses.

With a vision to document the story of how the Constitution of India was created, Rajya Sabha TV produced a 10-part TV mini-series Samvidhaan which was directed by the noted film director Shyam Benegal.[2][3][4][5]
