States ignore Centre’s query on CAS

State governments are as silent as the Centre, on conditional access system (CAS). While the Centre is yet to act on the recommendation of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) on CAS, states have also not responded to the Centre’s query on the issue.

More than two months ago, the information and broadcasting ministry had sought inputs from all the states on the desirability of introducing CAS. But, there’s no reply from any state so far, according to an I&B official.

Two years ago, when the government had mandated CAS in four metros, states were not consulted. As a result, at the time of implementation, state governments had cited local problems in rolling the service out.

Ultimately, only Chennai introduced CAS. The mess in the first round prompted the Centre to involve state governments in the CAS process subsequently.
