DD invites bids to conduct e-auction of vacant slots on Free Dish

MUMBAI: On behalf of Prasar Bharati, Doordarshan has invited technical and financial bids from interested agencies to conduct e-auction of Direct To Home (DTH) vacant slots of DD Free Dish platform. 

Prasar Bharati has decided to hire an agency for providing a secured e-auctioning platform to bring more transparency in the auctioning and process and allotment of DTH vacant slots of Free Dish to private channels on annual or monthly basis, which would enable legitimate bidders to participate in auction through internet using digital certificates (DSC). No physical presence of bidders would be required at DD premises at the time of bidding.

Offered e-auction platform should be envisaged not only for time saving, but bring in transparency, cost effectiveness and efficiency in allotment of vacant slots of Free Dish, which would fetch better revenue for Doordarshan. 

Interested bidders are expected to submit the “Financial and Technical” bids along with an Earnest Money Deposit (EMD) of Rs 1 lakh through demand draft/bankers cheque drawn in favour of “PB, BCI, DG: DD New Delhi” on any scheduled commercial bank payable at New Delhi to be enclosed with the technical bid. The last date for submission of the bids is 10 April, 2015. The opening of the financial bids will be intimated later to all technically qualified bidders.

The bids will have to be submitted to  Facilitation Counter, Tower ‘A’, Doordarshan Bhawan, Copernicus Marg, New Delhi 110001.

The Free Dish DTH platform is being expanded by increasing the capacity from the current 64 channels to 112 channels. The expansion would provide a total of 64 MPEG-2 channels and a total of 48 MPEG- 4 channels. Therefore more slots will be available on the Dish TV platform in future for private channels and all the vacancy will be filled purely on the basis of television.

The successful bidder is expected to design, structure and implement the overall process of e-auction on a simultaneous, controlled, ascending basis including the e-aspects with the approval of Prasar Bharati.
