Teleport ops not furnishing TV channel list will face cancellation, says MIB

MUMBAI: The Ministry of Information & Broadcasting (MIB) has issued a notice threatening to cancel the licences of teleport operators who are not furnishing the complete list of TV channels being uplinked from their teleport every month.

The teleport operators have been directed to submit this information within 15 days from 9 March, which is the date of issuance of this notice. If they fail to do so, it will be presumed that the teleport is not functioning and action will be initiated for cancellation of its permission.

As per the MIB’s earlier notice dated 7 January 2013, all the teleport operators having permission for uplinking and downlinking of TV channels are required to furnish the detailed list of TV channels being uplinked from their teleport every month.

However, the ministry noted that some of the teleport operators were still not furnishing the monthly report and the data for those who were furnishing the report did not match the permissions issued by this ministry for uplinking/downlinking of TV channels from their respective teleports.

The ministry has directed all the teleport operators having permission for uplinking and downlinking of TV channels to immediately furnish details of the permissions issued by the MIB to date for uplinking/downlinking of TV channels from their teleports.

“It may be noted that the permissions issued, if any, over and above the report of the teleport operators will be considered as lapsed and action will be initiated by the ministry to cancel such permissions,” the notice read.
