MUMBAI: The ministry of information and broadcasting (MIB) has accepted the Inter Ministerial Committee’s (IMC) recommendation to continue with the existing cross holding restriction in the guidelines for direct to home (DTH) operators. While discussing the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s (TRAI) recommendations on consultation paper related to ‘Issues related to New DTH License’, the IMC noted that the matter of cross-holding in DTH has to be taken into consideration in the larger context of other TRAI recommendations on cross-media holdings. In the existing DTH licence guidelines, the authority has imposed a restriction of 20% on cross-media holdings. A broadcasting or a cable TV company cannot hold more than 20% stake in a DTH company. Similarly, a DTH company cannot own more than 20% in a broadcasting or a cable TV company. The TRAI had furnished its recommendations on “Issues relating to Media Ownerships” to the ministry on 12 August 2014 while the one related to ‘Issues related to New DTH License’ was issued on 23 July 2014.
