#1
MUMBAI: India has 281 pay channels as on 30 September, as per information provided by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) to the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting (MIB).

The channels that are not mentioned in the list may be considered free-to-air (FTA) channels, Minister of State in the MIB Rajyavardhan Rathore said in the Lok Sabha.

Rathore also stated that the MIB had granted permission to uplink and downlink to 892 private satellite TV channels and 81 teleports in accordance with the policy guidelines to uplink and downlink of TV channels.

Rathore said that broadcasters with valid permission for uplinking and/or downlinking will not be required to obtain renewal permission from the MIB, in conformity with the policy guidelines for uplinking and downlinking of TV channels in India.

The payment of annual permission fee 60 days before the due date by itself will be sufficient permission for continuation of a channel for a further period of one year from the due date, he said.

He also said that all the TV channels and teleports are likely to benefit from this decision, provided the validity of 10-year permission is available.
