Minister of State Rajyavardhan Rathore said this had been done keeping in view the national security angle. He said the I and B Ministry is the licensing authority for DTH broadcasting services in India and it has received no application or reference from ABS for DTH operations.

Great move. ABS free dish was operating without paying for tax/licence nothing Also they were earning carriage fees from Indian channels. This will put an end to such fraud activities.

Nautanki start by government
sorry bro,but it's not a nautanki by the government,something illegal means illegal..we even don't know who is behind it..also indian government couldn't get tax regarding to deal happened between ABS and indian broadcaster as carriage fees..
for example DD National carried by abs and this is against government rules,no sat can carry DD1 without government permission,also private broadcaster lost revenue during live cricket or other sporting events......

why would Indian govt get tax when no money is paid by you and me? anyway, it looks like it won't be implemented.

"As far as individuals are concerned, the ban was of limited use and it was very difficult to check if someone was watching these channels or not.

It was also not clear whether anyone found watching these channels using a dish antenna could be prosecuted under Indian laws."
