cauverynewsWith nine more television channels getting clearance, the total number of permitted private television channels has risen to 890 by the end of July 2017, still far short of the claim made last year that the country will have 1500 channels by the end of March this year.

The master list issued by the government of 883 includes nine channels the permission of which was “cancelled by the ministry of information and broadcasting due to security denial by the home ministry. However, a stay order (has been granted) by (the) court.”

The number of total channels had grown from 869 in February-end 2016 to 892 in February-end this year but had fallen by 10 since then. In fact, the number had risen to 899 by the end of December 2016 when the total cancellations were 155. By January-end this year, the number had fallen to 889 of which 12 banned channels had received stay orders from courts.

Channels permitted in July include two news channels: Cauvery News in Tamil owned by Cauvery Power Trading Chennai Pvt. Ltd and TVS Kannada owned by Shreya Broadcasting Pvt. Ltd.
