NEW DELHI: All teleports operators have been asked by the ministry of information and broadcasting (MIB) to provide information with regard to the exact location of their teleport alongwith the longitude and latitude details.

This follows the decision of the ministry to prepare a GIS (Geographic Information Systems) Plotting of all teleports permitted by the ministry. Teleports have been asked to furnish the required information within seven days from the date of issue of the notice.

In March this year, the ministry had reminded all teleports about giving information about television channels uplinked or downlinked by them and warned that permissions other than those in the report of the Teleport Operators will be considered as lapsed and action will be taken to cancel such permissions.

The ministry said on 17 March that all teleports have to report within 15 days according to the formula attached to the notice on the ministry's site.

The ministry had, on 7 January 20I3, directed all the teleport operators having permission for up-linking and down-linking of TV channels to furnish the detailed list of TV Channels being uplinked from their teleport every month.

The note said: ?It has come to the notice of this Ministry that some of the teleport operators are still not furnishing the above monthly report and those who are furnishing the report, the data do not match with the permissions issued by this Ministry for uplinking/downlinking of TV channels from their respective teleports.

The Ministry had decided that all the teleport operators having permission for up-linking and down-linking of TV channels shall immediately furnish details of the permissions issued by Ministry till date for uplinking/downlinking of TV channels from their teleports in the fixed proforma.

Teleports who do not give such information will be presumed to be non-functional and action will be initiated for cancellation of the teleport permission.

?Furnishing this information is mandatory and non-compliance will be construed as violation of the uplinking guidelines,? the Ministry said.
