Centre removes ban on 'KU' band on TV broadcast with immediate effect

In a move that will facilitate direct-to-home broadcasting in the country, the government on Friday removed the prohibition on 'KU' band television broadcast signals directly from satellites with immediate effect.

A gazette notification to this effect has been issued amending the radio, television and video cassette recorder sets (exemption from licensing requirements) rules, 1997, removing the prohibition for the use of such apparatus in the frequency bands 4800 MHz and above, an official release said. The prohibition on establishment, maintenance, possessing or dealing of equipment capable of receiving KU-band TV broadcast signals directly from satellite has now been lifted.

This will help in introduction of DTH broadcasting in the country, which was given the Union cabinet's nod in November last year.
