General News MIB makes DoS permission mandatory for all uplinking/downlinking applications
#1

MUMBAI: The ministry of information and broadcasting (MIB) has reversed its earlier order and has made it mandatory for broadcasters to obtain no-objection from Department of Space (DoS) for all applications seeking uplinking permission/ change of teleport and/or satellite in respect of TV channels.

The order has come into immediate effect.

The ministry had done away with the procedure of seeking no-objection from DoS through an order dated 22 February, 2017 as it was of the view that seeking clearance/No-objection from DoS for TV channels which are proposed to be uplinked through an existing teleport tantamount to duplication.

However, the DoS recently observed that by not referring TV channel applications to them, certain key aspects are not getting examined on a case by case basis provided by the applicant, which can create interference issues and difficulties in coordination with Indian satellites at any later stage.

“Accordingly, the policy decision taken earlier by this Ministry has been reviewed in the light of DoS’ observations and it has been decided with the approval of the competent authority to revert to the erstwhile practice of referring all applications seeking uplinking permission/ change of teleport and/or satellite in respect of TV channels to DoS for its No-objection with reference to proposed satellite’s co-ordination with Indian satellites,” the MIB said in its order.

“In view of the above, the earlier order issued by this Ministry dated 22nd February, 2017 is hereby withdrawn with immediate effect. This order will come in force with immediate effect.”
