Other important matters stalls clearance of Cable TV Bill

The Cable Television Networks (Amendment) Bill, 2002, which would pave the way for a conditional access system in the broadcasting sector, will have to wait, as the Rajya Sabha today could not take up the Bill for discussion and passage.

The Bill will now be taken up only in the monsoon session. However, if there is a substantial increase in subscription rates, the Government would issue an Ordinance to protect the interests of the consumers.

On Wednesday, the Lok Sabha passed the Bill, which seeks to regulate operation of cable TV networks through the mandatory installation of an addressable system for accessing pay channels.
