India Now! is an exciting, rich and entertaining half hour of news, culture and politics from India and the subcontinent, from the makers of Planet America and China Tonight.
Hosted by Marc Fennell with a panel of guests, and with regular updates from Avani Dias on the ground in India - the show will explore everything that makes this enchanted country, and its neighbours, the region to watch.

For new arrivals, to long settled migrants, and anyone interested in one of the most populous and fascinating places in the world - we bring the subcontinent to you.
As Australia’s relationship continues to grow at a rapid rate, and with ever closer ties at a government level, the show will be informative, always entertaining and told through stories and the people from India and the region.

Also airs on ABC NEWS channel Tuesdays at 8pm AEST and Saturdays at 2.30pm and 7.30pm AEST. Production credit: ABC NEWS production. Executive Producer – Annie White
