We are still crippled by huge amounts of license fee, other taxes: RC Venkateish, CEO, Dish TV

“There is a lot more they (the government) can do for the DTH industry, which we have been asking for because we are fulfilling their dream of digitisation. For every Rs 100, we are spending close to Rs 34 on taxes. If I am able to convert an analog guy into a digital one, I am creating a revenue stream for the government for which they should reward me and not punish me. So there is a case for substantial rationalisation of the tax structure,” stresses RC Venkateish, Chief Executive Officer, Dish TV.
