Cable TV strike evokes lukewarm response

The indefinite nationwide strike called by Multi Service Operators (MSO) and Cable TV operators across the country protesting the imposition of 10.2 per cent service tax has evoked a lukewarm response.

Mumbai-based In Cable Net has refrained from the strike stating that the operator would wait for the final budgetary decision before joining the bandwagon. Following the suit is Kolkata-based Cable Net Com, which after initial talks with the state government, has also fallen apart.

However, the strike was successful in Delhi, UP, Rajasthan, Punjab and Haryana. According to the spokesperson of the All India Cable TV forum, the strike would continue for an indefinite period until a final decision is taken by the Central Government. The strike has been successful and the Government should now understand our plight, the spokesperson said.

Reliable sources in I&B Ministry informed that the Government was still reviewing the matter and would take some time before coming to the final decision.
