Radio Midday conditional notice extended, stays on-air

Radio Midday has managed to work its way around the requirement of conditional notice it served the Government of India last year. Consequently, the station is still on air until TRAI announces the revised radio license fee structure.

Radio Mid Day West India, a subsidiary of Mid-Day Multimedia, which operates Go 92.5 FM station in Mumbai, had served a conditional notice to the Information & Broadcasting Ministry.

Given the terms of this conditional notice, Go 92.5 would have had to go off-air on June 29, if no change was induced in the radio licensing structure. However, the station has managed to continue with its on–air tunes, at least for some more time.

The station approached the Mumbai High Court in April 2004 to protest payment of the year’s license fee. Following which a hearing in June was decided on. Shariq Patel, Station Head, Go 92.5 explains, “The TRAI is still in the process of announcing its revised recommendations. As of now, we are asked to pay 50 per cent of the license fee on a pro-rata basis. So we will be on-air. The rest depends on what the TRAI now decides.”

The conditional notice implies that if the Government of India changes the licensing structure, the company retains the right to withdraw the notice and continue license / license agreement on revised term and conditions as may be mutually agreed to between the company and the Government of India.
