#1
Advertisement
MUMBAI: The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) after being lenient for couple of months in awarding channel licenses, is back to being strict. In the month of October, two new channels received licenses while none saw their licenses cancelled as on 31 October 2018.

The two channels are Khalsa channel and Nireekshana TV. Nexgen Telelinks got the permission for uplinking and downlinking Khalsa channel (non-news) in Hindi and all Indian scheduled languages on 9 October 2018. Shopping Zone India TV got the permission for uplinking and downlinking Nireekshana TV (non-news) in Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Telugu and scheduled Indian languages on 18 October 2018.

On the other hand, Jain TV, PBN (earlier Samachar 24X7) and Dheeran TV channels, which were present in the list of permitted private satellite TV channels in the list up to 30 September 2018, were not in the new list till 31 October 2018.

The 14 licenses which were cancelled earlier by MIB due to security denial by Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) are still now under stay order from the court.

After cancelling permission to 252 channels, the number of private satellite TV channels having valid permission in India stands at 866 as on 31 October 2018. 483 channels are non-news channels and the remaining 383 are news channels.

Of the 868 permitted private satellite channels, TV channels permitted for uplinking from India and also to downlink into India are 766 among which 362 are news channels and 404 are non-news channels. 11 non-news channels and five news channels are permitted for uplinking from India but not downlink into the country. 84 TV channels are uplinked from abroad which only have downlinking permission in India. This category includes 15 news and 69 non-news channels.

The ministry has also approved Viacom18’s name change application to rename the licence My Cam as Colors Gujarati Cinema. The broadcaster has already started testing the new channel.

Viacom18’s Colors Gujarati is the only Gujarati GEC in the country. Earlier, the broadcaster had launched Colors Kannada Cinema to fortify its presence in the Karnataka market.

Apart from Viacom18, the ministry has also approved Star India’s name change application to rename Star Utsav Movies as Star Gold Family. Star Utsav Movies is a free to air (FTA) Hindi movie channel.

Star India’s uplinking only licence has been renamed as Star Bharat (Middle East) from Life OK (Middle East).

Total Telefilms’ name change application has also been approved. The company has renamed its news licence as 1st News.

The MIB has so far granted permission to 1118 channels of which 252 permissions have been cancelled. Thus, the total number of permitted satellite TV channels having valid permission in India stands at 866 including 383 news licences and 483 non-news licences.
