All India Digital Cable Federation (AIDCF), the apex body of digital cable television players, has appointed Rajan Gupta (MD – Hathway Cable & Datacom, Chairman & Non-Executive Director – GTPL Hathway) as its new president with immediate effect. The change took effect after TS Panesar, the erstwhile president, resigned from his post at Hathway.


While giving his exit statement, Panesar said, “I am resigning from the Board and President’s role at AIDCF as I have put in my paper at Hathway. During my short stint at AIDCF, the Federation has added new members, all of whom are regional leaders in their respective markets. Their presence will certainly help the Federation in raising regional issues. I also hope that TRAI’s new regulations will become a reality soon.”


Commenting on his appointment as the new AIDCF President, Gupta said, “I am delighted to accept the President’s role at AIDCF. Digitalisation journey for Cable TV is almost over and focus will now shift to monetising STBs seeded in last few years. Next phase of growth in Cable TV industry will come through convergence and innovative value-added services. I look forward to collaborating with all national and regional MSOs for maximising industry revenue and profitability.”


AIDCF Secretary General Saharsh Damani said, “With digitisation almost over, I am certain that under Gupta’s leadership, AIDCF members will chalk out a robust path in giving dual and triple play services to the end consumers.”
