Applicants seeking temporary uplinking permission need to apply 15 days in advance, says MIB
MUMBAI: The Ministry of Information & Broadcasting (MIB) has directed applicants seeking temporary uplinking permission to apply at least 15 days prior to the scheduled events, failing which their applications will be rejected.
The ministry has observed that while applying for permission for uplinking of various events for temporary uplinking permission, some applicants apply at the very last moment, sometimes just a few days prior to or the day before the scheduled events. Thus, the ministry does not even get the minimum processing time to work on those applications.
The ministry had issued a similar advisory on 9 January 2015 on the same subject.
After permission from the MIB, the WPC wing of the Ministry of Communications & Information Technology also requires minimum three days to process such applications.
