The central government amalgamated Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha television and renamed it "Parliament TV" last year. In March 2021, retired IAS Ravi Kapoor was named Chief Executive Officer (CEO). In the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu launched Parliament TV on September 15, 2021. The Rajya Sabha TV account on YouTube has been renamed Parliament TV. YouTube has now deactivated that account.
