Stay order on DigiCableComm’s licence cancellation extended till 28 Nov

MUMBAI: DigiCableComm Services, a joint venture between Digicable and Kolkata-based Multicon Group, has got more breathing space with the Calcutta High Court adjourning its licence cancellation case to 28 November.

Consequently, the HC’s order dated 31 July staying the effectiveness of the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting’s (MIB) cancellation order of DigiCableComm’s licence will continue.

Meanwhile, the MSO has filed a revised application in the new format prescribed by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA).

The MIB had cancelled DigiCableComm’s permanent registration for Kolkata due to denial of security clearance by the MHA. The MSO challenged the cancellation order in the Calcutta HC and got a stay order on its operation.

The single-member bench of Justice Dipankar Dutta granted interim relief to the MSO on the basis that it has been in the business for quite some time and it would suffer irreparable loss and injury unless appropriate ad-interim protection is granted to it.
