Travel Channel International gets FIPB nod
Advertisement
#1
MUMBAI: The Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) has given its approval to Travel Channel International (TIC) UK, to set up a wholly-owned Indian subsidiary.

The FIPB has allowed the US-based Cox Communications owned channel to undertake downlinking of non news channel with initial foreign investments of Rs 42 million.

Meanwhile, as per media reports, Cox is looking to sell about 65 per cent of the channel, and leading the race is Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.

Among the other proposals approved by FIPB are two from the Dainik Bhaskar Group. DB Corp's proposal to increase foreign shareholding has got the nod. The company intends to make an initial public offering (IPO), including an offer for sale from existing promoters up to 26 per cent of post IPO paid up share capital.

Dainik Bhaskar Group's radio arm, Synergy Media, also got approval from the board to increase the foreign shareholding, in order to carry out the activities relating to FM radio broadcasting in various circles in India.

Sahara One Media and Entertainment Ltd got ex post facto approval for foreign investment by NRIs and FIIs to carry out the activities relating to entertainment media, and motion pictures.

Meanwhile, the FIPB board deferred UTV Software Communications' proposal to issue and allot equity shares pursuant to the scheme of arrangement approved by the Bombay High Court.

It also deferred a proposal from Out of Home Media (India) Pvt Ltd. This was for "conversion of operating company into operating-cum-investing company" and "to make downstream investments."
