Broadcasters request for review of 20 pc sectoral cap in DTH

The top officials of Star, Zee, Sony and Doordarshan met the government representative to deliberate on DTH. This was probably the last time that at top-level meeting took place on DTH before placing it in the public domain. The group of broadcasters has again asked the government to review the 20 per cent sectoral cap in forming the DTH platform.

The government had invited the top honchos of the leading media companies of the country and the Indian Broadcasting Foundation (IBF) for their views on DTH. While the DTH guidelines are expected to be issued next week, it’s likely that the government would consider the views aired by the broadcasters at the meet.

Even though the law ministry had approved the DTH guidelines early last week, the information and broadcasting ministry, which had formulated the guidelines, kept DTH under wrap for all these days. It seems that the I&B ministry was waiting to pass the DTH modalities by the top bosses of the Indian media world before letting it out to the world.
