DoT clears way for FM players to set up temporary radio stations

The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has given its clearance to private FM radio licensees in metros to set up temporary radio stations till the permanent towers are in place.

Although the Information and Broadcasting Ministry had some time ago given an in-principle go-ahead to the proposal of these FM licensees, it had forwarded the same to DoT for its approval.

But, the licensees cannot start their operations just yet, as the proposal has to be vetted by the Law Ministry. Next, it will be referred to other competent authorities in the government for the final seal.

FM licensees in the four metros had sent a joint letter to the I&B Ministry about three months ago, requesting it to grant permission to set up individual transmission stations on top of tall buildings for an interim period so that they could begin transmission without any further delay.
