The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) in the month of January 2022 cancelled the satellite TV channel license of Mahua Plus, ATV, Media One, and Shiva Shakti Sai for various reasons.

The Ministry cancelled Aadri Entertainment’s ‘Mahua Plus’ TV license on 19th January 2022. The Non-News category TV channel license was cancelled since the company did not seek permission for an extension of the use of foreign satellite apart from the outstanding annual permission fee and its non-operational status.

Aadri Entertainment’s ‘Shiva Shakthi Sai TV’ TV license was also cancelled on 19th January 2022. The Non-News category TV channel license was cancelled for similar reasons as the company did not seek permission for an extension of the use of foreign satellite apart from its non-operational status and outstanding annual permission fee.
