MUMBAI: The Ministry of Information & Broadcasting (MIB), which did not grant any TV channel licence in October, has issued three non-news licences in November.

The ministry has also cancelled one licence, that of of Navda Creations. It has restored five TV licences of Mahuaa Media and four of STV Enterprises.

Three TV channel licences issued in Nov

Sony Pictures Networks India (SPNI) has received downlinking licence for Sony Pix 2. The other two recipient of licences are Yelamanchili TV for Yone TV and Sri Venkateswara Bhakti Channel for SVBC 2.

Yone TV, which is the first complete Telugu web TV channel, has expanded to cable TV. It will now launch as a satellite channel.

Currently, Sri Venkateswara Bhakti Channel owns and operates spiritual channel Sri Venkateswara Bhakti Channel (SVBC).

The ministry has also reinstated the licences of nine TV channels owned by STV Enterprises and Mahuaa Media.

STV’s four news uplinking licences, namely Punjab Today, STV Jammu Kashmir News, STV Haryana News and STV UP News, have been restored.

Mahuaa Media’s three news licences, namely Mahuaa, Mahuaa News and First India, as well as two non-news licences, Mahuaa Music and Mahuaa Movies have, been restored.

The licences have been restored following a stay order given by Delhi High Court. The licences were cancelled due to denial of security clearance by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA).
