  M/s Bharati Telemedia Ltd. to seek separate FIPB approval
Posted by: Sathish - 02-18-2009, 08:35 PM - Forum: Airtel Digital TV - No Replies

The Ministry of Information & Broadcasting has advised M/s Bharti Telemedia Ltd. to seek separate FIPB approval for indirect foreign investment coming into the licensee company. FIPB in its meeting held on 9th January 2009 has recommended the proposal subject to compliance with the guidelines of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting and compounding of the violation. This information was given by Shri Anand Sharma, Minister for Information and Broadcasting & External Affairs in a written reply to a question in the Parliament today.

It was further stated in the reply that the shareholding pattern furnished by M/s Bharti Telemedia Ltd. revealed that the DTH licensee did not have any FIPB approval for foreign investment coming into it through investing companies which was not in accordance with the existing FDI policy. The licensee was therefore required to show cause why action should not be taken against it for violation of DTH license conditions.

DTH Guidelines provide that total foreign equity holding including FDI/NRI/OCB/FII in the applicant company should not exceed 49% and within the foreign equity, the foreign direct investment component should not exceed 20%. The quantum represented by that proportion of the paid up equity share capital to the total issued equity capital of the Indian promoter company, held or controlled by the foreign investors through FDI/NRI/OCB investments, shall form part of the above said FDI limit of 20%. The foreign investment into a DTH company as per the FDI policy of the Government requires FIPB approval.

Mumbai: On the eve of their departure to New Zealand, Indian cricket team got a new dress in a darker shade of blue for one-day internationals here on Wednesday.

  New Zealand to get invite for Champions League?
Posted by: Sathish - 02-18-2009, 04:16 PM - Forum: Sports Zone - No Replies

Wellington: The organisers of the Champions League may invite New Zealand's domestic Twenty20 champions to participate in the cash-rich event, a media report said here on Wednesday.

"New Zealand Cricket hasn't yet been invited to the tournament but it is understood chief executive Justin Vaughan is hopeful of getting the green light before New Zealand's domestic Twenty20 final on March 1," a report in the Dominion Post said.

The top-two domestic Twenty20 teams from India, Australia, South Africa and England and one team from Pakistan are due to figure in the tournament, scheduled for October.

The newspaper has also started speculation on which team stumper-batsman Brendon McCullum will play if his home side -- Otago -- qualifies.

"Otago are at the top of the competition points table and are a leading contender to claim the State twenty20 title and progress to India in October. McCullum's Indian Premier League team, the Kolkata Knight Riders, are also strong contenders to make the Champions League."

"If Otago and Kolkata both book spots in the coming months it will provide McCullum with three options, after he qualified to play for New South Wales when he played in the Australian domestic twenty20 final last month," the newspaper wrote.

"McCullum's situation isn't unique, with other New Zealand players Jacob Oram, Scott Styris, Daniel Vettori, Ross Taylor, Kyle Mills and Jesse Ryder also facing the possibility of being torn between New Zealand and IPL teams."

The newspaper also claimed that the issue did figure in New Zealand Cricket's discussions in Christchurch on Monday "but it was decided not to make a firm call on the matter, or at least release their thoughts publicly, until the possible headache did actually arise."

Otago chief Ross Dykes also chose not to dwell on the issue unless they see an invitation from the organisers.

"It is a matter of crossing that bridge if we come to it. We didn't want to go around in circles discussing something which might not eventuate," he said.

  Carriage, content flexbility for FM in offing
Posted by: Sathish - 02-18-2009, 02:35 PM - Forum: Cable TV and FM Radio Services - No Replies

MUMBAI: Following the success of the FM Phase II policy for expansion of FM radio services through private operators, the government is moving towards giving further flexibility to the operators with respect to carriage and content, and incentivising their extension to the state of the north eastern region, Jammu and Kashmir and island territories, I&B secretary Sushma Singh has said.

Speaking at the 10th edition of Ficci Frames in Mumbai, Singh said that the government was in the process of amending the FM Phase II policy for the launch of FM Phase III in about 275 cities with as many as 790 channels. The government has also allowed political advertisements on FM radio with a view to mitigating the effects of falling advertising spend due to the economic slowdown, she added.

"We are also trying to resolve the issues with respect to music royalties. We are hopeful that these initiatives would enhance the growth rate further," Singh said, referring to the ongoing tussle between the FM radio players and the music industry over royalty payments.

Earlier, the minister released the Ficci-KPMG Report 2009 on the Indian Entertainment Industry and the FICCI-Amarchand Mangaldas Entertainment Lawbook.

The inaugural session of Ficci Frames 2009 was also addressed by Intel Corporation Vice President, Legal & Corporate Affairs & Director, Global Public Policy Donald M Whiteside who is leading a US delegation to the convention on behalf of the institutional partner US India Business Council (USIBC). Special addresses were given by Ficci Entertainment Committee chairman Yash Chopra; Ficci Entertainment Committee Kunal Dasgupta, and Ficci Convergence Committee chairman Amit Khanna.

On the occasion, Yash Chopra announced the appointment of noted film director, Karan Johar as co-Chairman of the Ficci Entertainment Committee.

Commenting on the tie-up, Viacom 18 Media Group CEO Haresh Chawla says: "With MTV, Nick and Vh1 being a part of TheOneAlliance bouquet as pay channels, we've enjoyed a long and fruitful relationship with TheOneAlliance over the last few years.

"With the spotlight on the hugely successful IPL, the coveted acquisition of the New Zealand Cricket and other mega properties, this exciting collaboration between the Viacom18 channels sees 'TheOneAlliance' creating waves as a formidable bouquet," said Multi Screen Media Pvt. Ltd COO N P Singh.

Adds Viacom18 senior VP president –network development Sanjev Hiremath: "We are happy to renew our association of 5 years with MSM-D and to strengthen 'TheOneAlliance' brand with the inclusion of Colors.
