Chennai DAS distress continues

The digitisation drive in Chennai continues to give sleepless nights to all stakeholders involved. Cable operators in Chennai had filed a petition against the notification of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) to implement DAS in the four metros. Justice PPS Janarthanaraja and Justice N Paul Vasantha Kumar were expected to hear the petition. However, a reshuffling of judges has pushed the hearing further, with the cable operators now being asked to file a new petition.

This petition will now be heard by a new bench comprising Justice Elipe Dharma Rao and Justice Aruna Jagadeesan.

Talking to exchange4media, MR Srinivasan, General Secretary, Chennai Metro Cable Operators Association said, “The new bench of judges have asked operators to file a fresh petition. This is second time in two days that hearing has been adjourned.”

CMCOA had filed a petition requesting for postponement of cable digitisation in Chennai by three months, till January 2013. The Madras high court has already postponed the deadline thrice since October 31.

The court first put a stay on the digitisation deadline of October 31, 2012 extending it till November 5. The court postponed the deadline again till November 9 and in the third hearing, the date was pushed till November 19.
