MIB rejects Scod18 application as MHA denies security clearance; MSO gets stay order

MUMBAI: The Ministry of Information & Broadcasting (MIB) has rejected the application of Mumbai-based multi-system operator (MSO) Scod18 Networking due to denial of security clearance by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA).

The MSO, however, has secured a stay order from the Bombay High Court.

“We moved the Bombay High Court against the rejection of our application. We got a stay on Friday,” Scod18 Networking managing partner Johnwin Manavalan told TelevisionPost.com.

Scod18 had received provisional registration on 29 June 2012 for 10 years, issued for the state of Maharashtra. Scod18 Networking operates under the brand name You Scod18.

The company runs cable TV services in Mumbai, Thane and Navi Mumbai.

Apart from Scod18 Networking, the MIB has also rejected the application of Digi JPR Networks, a joint venture between Digicable and JPR Networks, due to denial of security clearance by the MHA. Digi JPR Networks had filed an application for MSO registration on 9 July 2014.

The MIB has so far cancelled registrations of 30 MSOs including Digicable, Kal Cables, Intermedia Cable Communication and Godfather Communications. All the four MSOs named above have got a stay order on the MIB’s cancellation order.

MIB grants permanent licence to 25 new MSOs

The MIB has also granted permanent licences to 25 new MSOs, including Siti Cable Network, which had earlier received security clearance from the MHA. The total number of MSOs in the country has reached 219 as on 6 July.

Of these 25 MSOs, five have got pan-India registration. These are Rajasthan Banswara-based Goldy Diginet, Madhya Pradesh Narsinghpur-based Engineer’s Resource Associates India, Kolkata-based Multireach Media, Delhi-based SHR Digital Networks and Siti Cable Network.
