MIB is in talks with ISRO to resolve transponder crunch

MUMBAI: For long, direct-to-home (DTH) operators have been grumbling against transponder space shortage with Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) acting as the policeman. That complaint seems to have reached the ears of the ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB).

Information and Broadcasting (I&B) secretary Bimal Julka said Wednesday that the ministry is in talks with ISRO and the Department of Space (DoS) to resolve the issue of capacity crunch faced by the DTH operators.

Julka noted that the DTH operators are facing limited transponder capacity. “DTH operators have been demanding for more transponders. We are in discussions with ISRO and DoS to resolve this issue at the earliest,” he said.
