In June, the Hindu had reported that under the banner of Sansad TV, both Lok Sabha TV and Rajya Sabha TV will continue to telecast live proceedings of the respective Houses while working under an integrated management. The report quoted an unnamed official as saying that the merger was part of an attempt to "go beyond the proceedings of the two Houses and show the functioning of Parliament and parliamentarians when the Houses are not in session".
