DTH News : Will arasu cable get permission
Advertisement
#1
An inter ministerial group has been set up to examine recommendations made by Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) on whether the Centre or state governments should be allowed to enter broadcasting.

The I&B ministry will form its views on the TRAI recommendations after the panel studies them following which the future course of action will be decided.

Officials said that the panel set by Information and Broadcasting ministry would be headed by J S Mathur, Additional Secretary in the ministry.

The ministry had earlier through a letter written on November 30th last year and sought clarifications from TRAI on whether state or central governments or entities on which they have control could be allowed to enter broadcasting or distribution of channels.

In reply to the letter, TRAI had said that central government ministries, departments, companies, joint ventures or entities which belong to or are funded by centre or state governments "should not be allowed to enter in to the business of broadcasting and or distribution of TV channels."

Such decision by TRAI holds a lot of implication for Arasu Cable in Tamil Nadu who has been denied DAS licence. Further Punjab, Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh governments have also approached the I&B ministry for proposals related to broadcasting.
