Breaking News : Direct-to-home sector seeks infrastructure treatment
Direct-to-home (DTH) television operators, represented by the DTH Operators Association, have written to the finance ministry ahead of the Budget requesting the DTH and cable television sector be treated as infrastructure industry.

"All the benefits and incentives given to the infrastructure industry should be extended to the cable and DTH sector, including the availability of finance at a concessional rate. The sector should be allowed tax concessions under Section 80-IA of the Income Tax Act," said R C Venkateish, CEO of Dish TV and president of DTH Operators Association.

According to him, the digitisation process and the deployment of set-top boxes require huge investments and, hence, operator should be allowed to offset their accumulated losses and carry forward unabsorbed depreciation under Section 72 A of the Income Tax Act. India has six private DTH players - Tata Sky, Dish TV, Airtel DTH, Reliance Digital TV, Sun Direct, and Videocon d2h.

I agree, the infrastructure industry was going to lay the data cables. Where copper cabling doesn’t do the job anymore, fibre optic cables are all set to revolutionise the outlook towards technology. Fiber optic technology allows to transmit data over longer distances at high speeds. But the projects have not only been delayed but also postponed for many years.  
Sterlite Technologies have expertise in the optical fiber cable transmission solution.
With the products like data cables , optical fiber cable, fiber broadband and high speed internet it has emphasised on FiON, powered by Sterlite Networks Ltd, is a fibre-To- The- Home (FTTH) technology, which brings this high-speed connectivity right into your home.
