India TV is a Hindi news channel based in Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India. The channel was launched on May 20, 2004 just 2 days before BJP's tenure in government was ending (On 22nd May 2004) by Rajat Sharma and wife Ritu Dhawan.[1] The channel is the flagship service of Independent News Service, which was co-founded by Sharma and Dhawan in 1998.[2]

Prior to launching India TV, Rajat Sharma was a known face on Indian television since 1992, having previously been the anchor of Aap Ki Adalat on Zee TV and Janata Ki Adalat on Star TV. Independent News Service received investment from Fuse+ Media, an entity of ComVentures, a venture capital firm based in Palo Alto, California, United States with over $1.5 billion of assets under management. Further investments have valued Independent News Service at Rs. 800 crores.[2]
