Govt suspends applications for new TV channels on spectrum issue
Advertisement
#1
Quote:NEW DELHI: With as many as 512 television channels operating in the country, the Government has with immediate effect suspended receipt of new applications for permission to uplink television channels from India and downlink channels to India until the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India submits its report on spectrum availability.

In an order of 18 January, the Information and Broadcasting Ministry said "it has been observed that although improved technologies have resulted in better utilization of the available spectrum and transponder capacities, the spectrum and transponder capacities for satellite TV channels are not unlimited. A need is felt to revisit the present policy for uplinking and downlinking with respect to the approach towards grant of permission including the eligibility criteria and the terms and conditions of the permission."
