The Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal has reportedly ordered immediate restoration of transmissions of the Telugu channel TV9 in Telangana region after the CS reportedly asked the state DGP to ensure that there is protection to the multi-system operators providing signals.
In its order issued yesterday, the Tribunal reportedly mentioned that Telangana’s additional solicitor general Ramachandra Rao had given its list of steps taken from TS to offer full protection to the MSOs who can resume the broadcast of this channel. The MSOs meanwhile have submitted that if the state government could issue a public notice or a press release warning over any violence against any MSO’s for broadcasting the channel, then they can resume the broadcast as soon as possible.
Now all eyes are on the Telangana CM KCR because the government has to give its official nod and cannot dilly dally on this matter any longer. So far, it is being alleged that the government played a key role in stopping the TV9 from broadcast.
