Telecom regulator, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has come up with key recommendations for the cable and broadcasting industry. The news was first reported by TV news channel, CNBC TV18.

The most important one is that TRAI has fixed the deadline for the complete migration from analogue to digital cable services as December 31,2013. The process is going to get over in four phases.

In the first phase, the four metros will be covered followed by those cities having population more than one million. The third phase will have all the urban areas covered and in the last pan-India coverage has been proposed.

Besides this, the other recommendations are inclusion of income tax holiday for digital addressable system service providers and waiving off the basic custom duty on set top boxes and digital head ends to zero.

In another development it was found that complete digitization of cable TV distribution industry is going to help by increasing the value to $7.7 billion by 2015.

The subscriber base is also expected to grow four times to 86 million by 2015.
