IBF forms Joint Working Committee to resolve internal disputes; regional sub-committees also formed

The pay distribution committee of Indian Broadcasting Foundation (IBF) met in Delhi on September 3, 2009 to discuss the common issues of the industry and agreed to form a Joint Working Committee to sort out the internal issues/ disputes and drive the industry as a whole.

The pay distribution committee of IBF consists of ESPN, Star, Zee, Sony, ETV, and Neo Sports, along with the major MSOs represented by SN Sharma of DEN, Alok Govil of Hathway, Anil Malhotra of Indusland Media & Communications Ltd, Deepak Bajaj of DigiCable, Sudhir Aggarwal of WWIL, and Roop Sharma, President, COFI.

The Joint Working Committee has also agreed to form Regional Sub-Working Committees in different parts of the country. To start with, four Regional Sub Committees have been constituted – South Zone in Hyderabad, East Zone in Kolkata, West Zone in Mumbai, and North Zone in Delhi. These Sub-Committees would be represented by broadcasters, MSOs and LCOs.

Speaking on the occasion, Roop Sharma said that with the formation of the joint industry body, the litigation cost would reduce substantially, which the stakeholders were incurring for the matters before TDSAT and other courts.

Jawahar Goel, President, IBF, has welcomed the formation of the Joint Committee and the Regional Sub Committees, and is of the view that this would help overall growth of the industry, besides resolving the disputes amongst the stakeholders. He further said that the Committee should progress in the next six weeks to work out a mutually acceptable agreement between the broadcasters, MSOs and LCOs.
