Kantar case: Delhi HC adjourns hearing till August 26

Hearing in the Kantar Media Research case pertaining to cross media holding in TV research agency TAM Media has been adjourned yet again. The Delhi High court at a hearing today, July 11, 2014 has ruled that the next hearing will now be on August 26.

The hearing was adjourned after Justice Manmohan was informed that the new Government is yet to appoint an advocate who would argue on behalf of the Government.

With this adjournment, the stay on the clauses of the TV rating agency guidelines regarding cross-media ownership will remain in effect and TAM will continue to function until a final judgement is given.

Hearing in the Kantar case was earlier adjourned by the Delhi High Court till July 11, 2014 as the Government counsel was not available for the hearing on March 6, 2014.

It may be recalled that in the hearing on February 12, 2014, the Delhi High Court had ordered a stay on the clauses related to cross-media ownership, which avoided the situation of a ratings blackout by keeping TAM functional.

Moreover, Kantar was given more time to fulfill the requirements of the other clauses of the TV rating agency guidelines.
