First is the condition that makes the licence valid only for DTH broadcast facility. Other modes of communication, including voice fax, data, communication and the net requires specific and additional licences from authorities.

Another term that set off the alarm bell is that the DTH licensee will be bond to carry channels of Prasar Bharati on the “most favourable financial terms offered to any other channel.”
