Help June 2014 could be last date for cable TV digitalisation: TRAI
#1

New Delhi, Feb 18 (PTI) The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India today said it will recommend June 2014 as the last date for completion of cable TV digitalisation in India to the government.

"We will send our roadmap to ministry of I&B (Information and Broadcasting) on Monday. We will ask for sunset date of June 2014 and preferably December 2013 (for cable TV digitalisation)," TRAI Chairman J S Sarma told reporters.

He, however, said the "sunset date" is prerogative of the ministry to decide.
TRAI in its recommendation to I&B ministry had set December 2013 as the date for completion of digitalisation of cable TV but the ministry had asked the sectoral regulator to set December 2015 as the last date.

"Ministry has agreed to most of our proposals. Sunset date is very minor issue. What is important is that ministry has agreed to complete digitalisation the way we have recommended," Sarma said.

As per TRAI recommendations, cable TV digitalisation is to be carried out in four phases. It had suggested that digitalisation of cable TV should be completed in the four metros by March 31, 2011; in all cities having population of over one million by December 31, 2011; in all urban areas by December 31, 2012 and in rest of India by December 2013.
