CII: Define ‘monopoly’ in DTH policy

The Confederation of Indian industry has expressed itself against certain restrictions placed on equity in direct-to-home television services, as announced by the centre. Mr Subash Chandra, Chairman, CII National Committee on Media and Chairman Zee Network, said the Government’s intention to prevent monopolies had placed restrictions on Indian broadcasters and cable operators. Monopoly should be viewed from the angle of total share of voice or eyeballs. But in the era of convergence even this was difficult, he added. He pointed out that there were a number of cable operators or multi-system operators (MSOs) who were not in broadcasting. Placing equity restrictions would deny them the right to use a better delivery mechanism. The CII favoured classifying anybody over a 30 per cent share of the last mile linkage as a monopoly.
