NEW DELHI: A total of 112 multi system operators (MSOs) all over the country have been granted permanent registration for 10 years to operate the digital addressable system (DAS).
The MSOs had been given provisional permission earlier. The latest list is as on 22 August.
Those who have got permission include IndusInd Media and Communications, Hathway, Manthan Broadband, Den Network, Home Cable, Digicable Network, Delhi Distribution Company and Asianet Satellite Communications.
According to a list issued in late July, 16 MSOs had been refused permission. It also said that Kolkata based Digicable Communications had been denied permission after the break-up of the joint venture with Digicable Networks of Mumbai, which has received permission for Greater Mumbai, National Capital Territory of Delhi and Greater Kolkata.
MSO sources, however, said that the approved list was in addition to the 140 whose names had been approved in March last year.
The Ministry website mib.nic.in has listed the areas and the date from which the MSOs have been given permission.
