Infrastructure status for b'cast industry, reduce customs duty on STBs (1 Viewer)

NEW DELHI: The Broadcasting industry should be granted infrastructure status to push the digitisation agenda of the government. 
In its wish-list submitted to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley – who also holds the Information and Broadcasting portfolio – the entertainment wing of the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) said that in the present era of convergence, the distinction between Telecom, IT and Broadcasting sectors is getting blurred. 
The Telecom sector is already treated as “infrastructure service” and so giving the infrastructure service status to broadcasting will provide a level playing field to the sector.
Broadcasters and distributors will be aided with better and affordable financing options in the very capital intensive growth phase. 
The FICCI wish-list covers television and radio broadcasting, cinema and animation and gaming, apart from suggestions relating to advertising in the media.
