Mumbai – Information and broadcasting secretary Sushma Singh said that the government is considering a reduction in licence fee for direct-to-home (DTH) to six percent of gross revenue from the prevailing rate of 10 percent. DTH operators including Dish TV, Tata Sky, Big TV, Sun TV and Airtel Digital TV have asked for a reduction in licence fee. The government is also looking at formulating a policy framework for Headend-In-The-Sky (HITS) soon. This will give a big boost to digitalization of cable TV across the country. To offer a boost to the growing animation, gaming and visual effects industry the government is setting up a centre. This has been envisaged as being a public/private sector partnership.
