Stay on DigiCablecomm’s licence cancellation extended till case disposal

MUMBAI: The Calcutta High Court has extended the stay order on the cancellation of DigiCablecomm Services’ multi-system operator (MSO) licence for digital addressable system (DAS) till the disposal of the matter.

This means that the MSO will not have to get the interim order extended in each subsequent hearing.

The matter was listed in the High Court before Justice IP Mukerji on 6 April. However, the bench heard the matter on 4 April itself and directed that the interim order already granted be extended till the disposal of the case.

On 18 July, the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting (MIB) had cancelled DigiCablecomm’s DAS licence for Kolkata and Howrah due to denial of security clearance by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA). DigiCablecomm is a joint venture between Digicable and Kolkata-based Multicon Group.

Subsequently, the MSO obtained a stay order from the Calcutta HC against the MIB’s cancellation order. Even as the matter is being fought in the court, the MSO had filed a revised application for security clearance in the new format prescribed by the MHA.
