Broadcasting & telecom cases may be resolved separately: Govt
The Government is open to the proposal to create separate dispute resolution mechanisms for broadcasting and telecom sectors, Union Minister Arun Jaitley said on Saturday.
Amid sector regulator TDSAT flooded with cases, its chairperson Justice Aftab Alam said the number of broadcasting cases has far exceeded those related to telecom. He was speaking at a seminar on Telecom and Broadcasting theme ART (Adjudication, Regulation, Telecommunication) of Convergence, TDSAT.
Responding to the issue raised by Justice Alam, Jaitley, who holds the charge of Information and Broadcasting Ministry besides Finance Ministry, said the government was willing to look at the suggestion of having a separate mechanism to deal with broadcasting cases.
