Becil signs MoU with private FM broadcasting companies to set up FM stations

Broadcast Engineering Consultants India Ltd., (Becil) has signed a contract with two broadcasting companies -- Entertainment Network of the Bennett, Coleman & Company and Music Broadcast Pvt. Ltd. of the Ispat Group, for setting up their FM radio stations in 12 non-metro centres. Out of these 12 centres, eight are for Entertainment Network and four for Music Broadcast.

Becil also recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with all the players in the metros for the permanent FM radio set-ups.

As reported earlier, Music Broadcast has already launched its first FM radio station in Bangalore and is is currently working on the remaining three non-metro centres--Lucknow, Nagpur and Patna. Entertainment Network, which has eight licenses in the non-metros, is likely to begin transmission around September. In the Entertainment Network stable, Indore may be the first FM station to be commissioned. Ahmedabad will follow Indore.

Even as companies have signed up for the non-metro centres, the licensees for the metro stations are still awaiting a clearance from the government to set up interim radio stations.
