IBF sets up committee to study broadcasting in convergence era

Indian Broadcasting Foundation (IBF) has set up a committee to study the role of broadcasting in the era of convergence. The committee would look into digital broadcasting, DTH, high-definition TV and digital terrestrial TV, and submit its report by February 2002.

According to IBF, a delegation of top Indian broadcasters is meeting Information and Broadcasting minister Sushma Swaraj on January 2 to stress on the removal of service tax and waiver of customs duty on hardware used by the entertainment industry. The group would be led by Prasar Bharati Corporation CEO, Anil Baijal.
