Govt seeking legal advice on CAS: Swaraj

The government is in favour of allowing the conditional access system, giving viewers the option of paying subscription only for television channels they want to see, and is seeking advice from the law ministry on the issue.

CAS would effectively tackle most malpractices, including under-reporting of customers and unwanted telecasts in the cable network system, and allow for self-censoring and parental locking, besides giving viewers the choice of channels.

Information & Broadcasting minister Mrs Sushma Swaraj said, that a committee has also been set up to evolve methods for CAS set top boxes for which the cable operators have assured that the cost was not likely to weigh down heavily on the consumer, as financial institutions could give loans in view of entertainment being declared an industry.
