Ministry seeks TRAI’s view on govt's foray into b'casting

The Information and Broadcasting Ministry has sought the recommendations of Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) regarding the entry of central or state governments into broadcasting sector.

The ministry made this reference recently as the issue of granting permission to the State Government or its organs to run Cable TV Network has been drawing its attention from time to time particularly with reference to the TRAI recommendations restricting such entities to enter into broadcasting and distribution activities. The ministry has received requests from central government ministry and from several state governments in the past. 

The ministry asked TRAI regarding the entry of Central or State Government ministries and departments, owned companies or joint venture companies between Central or State Governments and private sector, or Government funded entities in the broadcasting sector.

Earlier in November 2008, TRAI in its recommendation suggested that the state government and their organs may not be permitted to enter into broadcasting and distribution activities.

It is well understood that as the first phase of digitisation is over and the second phase is knocking the door, the move will be very beneficial for the government broadcaster. It will also allow them to reach maximum number of households through a bigger platform.

As far as the state broadcasters are concerned, it will have a direct impact on the state run ARASU cable also. However, it will be interesting to watch government broadcasters and the private players working on the same platform.
