channels are not launched within the deadline.

The revised norms are applicable to new licence seekers and not
the existing channels. According to a information and
broadcasting ministry official, the new net worth structure will be
applicable to existing channels only if their 10-year licence has
expired, or if they are looking to add new channels to their
bouquet. The official declined to be identified as he is not
authorized to speak to the media.
The broadcasting companies will also pay Rs15 lakh a channel per
year if they downlink a channel in India that has been uplinked
from overseas. For downlinking a channel uplinked from India,
the fees is lower at Rs5 lakh a channel per year.
The ministry of information and broadcasting has two sets of
policy guidelines. One for channels uplinked from overseas and
distributed here for public viewing; this is the policy for
downlinking of television channels notified in November 2005.
Private TV channels uplinked from and shown in India are
governed by the guidelines for uplinking from India.
The broadcast industrys reaction to the Cabinet decision was
mixed. Rajat Sharma, chairman of Independent News Service Pvt.
Ltd that runs Hindi news channel India TV, said that the
ministrys concern to prevent dodgy news companies from
entering the business was wise. In the long term, it is far more
expensive to run a news channel than an entertainment channel,
said Sharma. Non-serious companies (particularly real estate
firms) appear for a short term, poach journalists from legitimate
news channels and spoil the market, he said.
A media analyst who declined to be named said stricter eligibility
norms could mean better quality of content on television. Theres
a lot of clutter on television. Existing companies will think twice
about randomly launching channels, and non-serious

broadcasters will be under tremendous pressure, he said.


However, others feel that the higher net worth requirement may
be a deterrent to existing channels expansion plans. Sunil Lulla,
chief executive of Times Global Broadcasting Co. Ltd that runs
English news channels ET Now and Times Now, said that news
channels, faced with steep carriage fees, increasing cost of
coverage and tough fight for advertising revenues, may find the
new norms challenging.
Jehil Thakkar, executive director, media and entertainment, at
KPMG, said such policies could force some of the existing
companies intending to start new channels to exit business.
Yet others feels the norms are still not stringent enough to weed
out weak firms. Jawahar Goel, chief executive of Dish TV India
Ltd and former president of the Indian Broadcasting Foundation,
said it was not really a restrictive policy. The guidelines on net
worth are fairly insignificant. Its a good move, but not enough.
Paritosh Joshi, chief executive of STAR CJ Network India Pvt.
Ltd, said theres been a mushrooming of channels in the Hindi
news genre. To a large extent, the mushrooming is unsavoury.
Globally, OfCom (Federal Office of Communication) has a fit and
proper test where individual shareholders are scrutinized. Here
what the ministry is saying is far easier in terms of restrictions.
Joshi said these norms will also affect existing channels because
their tenure is temporary and licences will need to be renewed.
According to the broadcasting ministry, 745 channels were given
permission till the end of August this year.
