Uplinking permission to Jeevan TV withdrawn

The Government has withdrawn the permission to Jeevan Telecasting Corporation Ltd to uplink their Malayalam TV channel Jeevan TV in India with effect from September 11. Promoted by the Kerala Catholic Church, the channel had failed to get clearance from the Home Ministry for telecast of news and current affairs.

Jeevan TV was permitted to uplink this channel from India in 2002 as per the uplinking guidelines at that time. Subsequently, the Government introduced separate guidelines for permission for uplinking of news and current affairs TV channels from India and all existing channels which were carrying news and current affairs in their programme content were asked to conform to these guidelines.

The channel had submitted a fresh application to conform to the revised guidelines, but Ministry of Home Affairs did not grant security clearance to the company to uplink news and current affairs on the channel.

Accordingly, no DTH service provider and cable TV operator can carry Jeevan TV on their DTH/cable network.
