“If I am able to convert an analog guy into a digital one, I am creating a revenue stream for the government and they should reward me and not punish me. So there is a case for substancial rationalization of the tax structure. Nonetheless we continue to struggle on, so we deserve to get more encouragement than that. But that said and done, the momentum is firmly in. The last piece of the puzzle needs to fall into place is the role of these rating agencies which is dubious to say the least - even as we speak we have 29 million homes in DTH. The guy who buys a DTH is a better customer than the guy who buys analog cable. The entire digital platform in the eyes of noble rating agency has got only 11 per cent weightage. This is an anomaly which needs to be corrected.”
