Subject: Transmission of Mandatory TV Channels

Dear Member,

As you may be aware that the Central Government in pursuance of Section 8 of Cable Television Network (Regulation) Act,1995 has notified TV Channels (25 Doordarshan Channels in addition to Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha TV Channels ) that are to be mandatorily carried by each cable operator on its TV Network . The list of 25 Doordarshan Channels, that are mandatory, is attached herewith. Non-carriage of Mandatory TV channels is likely to attract punitive action under Section 11, Section 12 and Section 16 of the said Act.

As informed by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting in the enclosed letter, it has come to their notice that many hotels in the country are not offering the services of mandatory channels to their customers. Therefore, the Ministry has asked FHRAI to furnish a status report from all the member hotels of FHRAI whether the Distribution Platform Operator (DPO) supplying the television signal feed to the hotel is not carrying mandatory channels on its network or the same are being blocked by the hotels.

Kindly send us the list of the TV Channels you are offering in your hotel rooms along with the details of the  respective DPOs, to enable us to provide the information to the Ministry.

Please send your responses to eatosg@fhrai.com , within 7 days.

Looking forward for your valuable support.

Thanking You,

With best regards,
