NEW DELHI: Doordarshan, which held an e-auction for some channels to fill up slots on the direct-to-home Freedish platform on 28 October, has again set a reserve price of Rs 3.7 crore per slot for the 17th online e-auction to be conducted on 12 November.

 The e-Auction will be conducted by Synise Techn0ologies on behalf of Prasar Bharati.  The reserve price in the 15th e-auction was Rs 3 crore and was raised to Rs 3.7 crore in the last auction.

 Prasar Bharati CEO Jawhar Sircar had told indiantelevision.com earlier that the aim was to reach the target of 97 channels by October-end and 125 by March-end.  Prior to the 16th auction, the total number of channels on Freedish was 58.

Meanwhile, a Doordarshan official declined to give the number of successful bids conducted on 28 October as engineers of the pubcaster had to test these channels before verifying any numbers.

 A Prasar Bharati official told indiantelevision.com that DD had decided not to disclose the number of slots to be e-auctioned to prevent bidders forming consortia to bid or resort to other malpractices.

 The eligibility terms and conditions including other relevant details for this e-auction are displayed on DD website: www.ddindia.gov.in.

 However, the participation amount (EMD) in the e-Auction is Rs 1.5 crore, which will be deposited in advance on or before 11 November evening, along with processing fee of Rs.10,000 (non-refundable) in favour of PB (BCI) Doordarshan commercial service, New Delhi.

 Applicants have also been asked mandatorily to deposit a demand draft of Rs 5,500 Registration amount favouring Synise Technologies payable at Pune at the time of submission of the application. The time for every slot e-auction will be of fifteen minutes duration.

 The applicants must provide details of the Uplink/Downlink permission documents received from the concerned Ministries with the Applications to ensure they are not rejected.

 The demand drafts of unsuccessful bidders will be returned immediately or within a week after the e-auction process is completed.
