Uplink from India not mandatory for foreign TV channels

The government has made it clear that as per its policy, it was not mandatory for foreign television channels to uplink from India. In written statement in the Lok Sabha, Information & Broadcasting minister Sushma Swaraj said that since the Convergence Bill was still at the drafting stage it was not possible to say whether it would have any provision for compulsory uplinking of foreign channels.

The minister however insisted that it did not mean absence of any regulation or control for foreign channels. The programmes of foreign TV channels, when transmitted through cable networks, are required to adhere to the programme and advertisement code prescribed under the Cable Television Network (Regulations) Act 1995.
