DTH

Group of ministers discusses DTH

The group of ministers is once again meeting and discussing the opening up Ku-band DTH television even as this copy is being posted on indiantelevision.com on 2 November 2000. They had met earlier this week and decided that information and broadcasting (I&B) minister Sushma Swaraj should come up with a note which could be presented to the Union cabinet within a fortnight.



Apparently, Swaraj and her I&B team have already managed to get something in place, if one goes by a report on CNBC India. Its Delhi correspondent has reported that a note is doing the rounds, which says that the government is considering allowing as many DTH aspirants as are interested. The I&B ministry has done away with its earlier thinking that DTH should be centralised with state owned broadcaster DD owning the platform - alone or in partnership with a private company (either Indian or foreign).



Things will become clearer as the day progresses and Swaraj makes her announcement. Stay tuned in.
