DAS phase 3 digitization to be over by Dec 20, orders Delhi HC

On December 7, the Delhi High Court cleared the remaining cases for long pending digitization in DAS Phase 3 areas in the country. Pursuant to this order, digitization in Phase 3 areas should be complete by Dec 20, 2016.

The Delhi High Court dismissed all the remaining matters pertaining to the extension of digitization in DAS Phase 3 with the directions that the petitioners have to complete the installation of STBs and change over to DAS within a period of two weeks. The change over will be informed to their respective subscribers in advance by running a scroll.

All India Digital Cable Federation (AIDCF), the industry body representing Digital Multi System Operators (MSO), has asked all its members to work with Broadcasters to switch off analogue signals and implement digitization is DAS Phase 3 markets immediately. This will also pave the way for digital revenues to flow in from these areas as per the directives of the TRAI. AIDCF has also urged all Local Cable Operators, MSOs, Broadcasters and Government bodies to help complete digitization at the earliest.

VD Wadhwa, President AIDCF, welcomed the judgement and commented, “The recent judgement by Hon’ble Delhi High court dismissing the remaining cases have not only paved the way for completion of digitization in DAS Phase III areas but have also ushered in new vigor for digitization in phase 4 areas by 31st Dec 2016.”

“On behalf of AIDCF, I urge all MSOs, Cable operators, Broadcasters to switch off analogue feeds in 2 weeks to comply with the Honorable Courts’ order. We would also request Government bodies to extend their good support in meeting the digitization deadlines,” Wadhwa added.
