DTH News : Jayalalithaa requests PM for Arasu Cable TV's DAS licence
Advertisement
#1
The Tamil Nadu chief Minister Jayalalithaa has written to the Prime Minister requesting him to direct the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting to issue the Digital Addressable System(DAS)licence to Arasu Cable TV.

Arasu Cable TV had applied to the I&B Ministry for the Digital Addressable System licence on July 5, 2012. Despite representation to the Centre, it is yet to be issued. It is also learnt that the I&B Ministry has issued the licence to nine other multi-system operators in Tamil Nadu, including those who applied after the Tamil Nadu Arasu Cable TV Corporation.

The CM’s letter however comes at a time when the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (I&B) has questioned the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India whether governments can enter the broadcasting sector.

The Tamil Nadu Arasu Cable TV Corporation is a public sector undertaking of the Government of Tamil Nadu revived by the Chief Minister, J. Jayalalithaa last year.Since its re-launch in September 2011, Arasu has built a network that covers 31 districts in the state (but not Chennai) and reaches 4.9 million households.

The letter also mentions about the Government of India having issued a conditional access system (CAS) licence to the Arasu Cable TV Corporation for Chennai on April 2, 2008 and the CAS services are now in operation. The Government subsequently modified Chennai into a Digital Addressable System area.
