MIB decides all provisional MSO registrations to be treated as deemed regular registration for 10 years

The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) has instructed that all provisional MSO registrations, unless cancelled/suspended subsequently, to be treated as deemed regular registration for 10 years from the date of issue of provisional registration. This step comes less than a month before the total switch off of analogue signals. The last date for implementing the Digital Addressable System (DAS) was set on Jan 31, 2017, for phase-3 and March 31 for phase-4 viewers in the city.

In this midst, if the continuation of registration of any MSO is at any time found to be or considered detrimental to the security of the state then the granted registration is liable to be cancelled or suspended. All other terms and conditions depicted in the provisional registration letter(s) will continue to apply.

In the circular issued by the ministry in January, it was decided that all registered MSOs are free to operate in any part of the country, irrespective of registration for specified DAS notified areas granted by this Ministry. However, they have to submit the details of Headend, SMS, subscribers list and a self-certificate that they are carrying all the mandatory TV Channels, within six months from the date of issuance of MSO registration, to the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, failing which the MSO registration is liable to cancelled/suspended. The ministry also mentioned that all deemed regular registered MSOs are required to submit the details to the ministry within six months.

Currently, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has given registration to 1182 MSO by February end 2017.
