Govt revises digitisation deadline, adds to broadcasters' woes

The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has declared the new deadline for digitisation. The DAS phase III and IV will now be implemented next year.

According to a notice issued by MIB, the deadline of DAS phase III has been pushed from September 30, 2014 to December 2015 and for DAS phase IV the deadline has been pushed from December 2014 to December 2016.

The ministry also stated that in 2011, November, MIB made it obligatory for all the cable operators to transmit or re transmit programmes of any channel in an encrypted form through DAS.

It may be remembered that the government has been accelerating the digitisation process. Besides the I&B Minister tweeting about completing the process on time, the Ministry has also re-constituted a Task Force to oversee and monitor the implementation of Digital Addressable System (DAS) in the cable TV sector in the country.

During implementation of DAS in Phase-I and Phase-ll, the Task Force served as an effective platform to discuss and address various issues arising out of digitisation process.
