Delhi HC issues notice to I&B Ministry over downlinking & uplinking permissions
The Delhi High Court has issued notice to the I&B Ministry in a petition seeking the cancellation of downlinking and up-linking permissions granted to Star India and Discovery Network Asia Pacific (Discovery). The petition filed by Vikki Choudhry and Home Cable Network Private Limited was heard by a Bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath. Advocates Vivek Sarin, Md. Danish and VijayJha appeared for the petitioner in the matter. Advocates Anil Soni and Vinod Tiwari appeared for the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. The petitioner’s contention is that Star India and Discovery are in violation of the Programme and Advertisement Code prescribed under Rule 7 of the Cable Network rules, 1994 read with Section 6 of Cable Network Regulation Act, 1995. “This will certainly bring in a lot of correction in the Indian Cable & Satellite Broadcasting Industry, including the much required correction in TAM- TRPs that have proved to have no standards of credibility and transparency so far. There are 600 + TV channels in India, following the law of the land. Whereas these same Pay Broadcasters religiously follow the directives, in other parts of the world where they are being uplinked or downlinked under permission / guidelines,” said Choudhry.
