MIB contests TSM-MxMIndia study on extent of digitization in 4 metros. TSM & MxM stand by data

29 Oct,2012

On Friday evening, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting of the Government of India issued a statement defending the digitization numbers it has put out. The MIB contests the study published by Television Street Maps (TSM) and MxMIndia.com.

 

While we are happy to note that the ministry has carefully studied our data, we – TSM and MxMIndia – stand by the data published.

 

We will happy to cooperate with the Government and/or the TRAI if it wishes to see any clarifications. These can be addressed to editor@mxmindia.com and we will revert soonest.

 

We wish to reiterate that we are eager to see digitization happen. MxMIndia commissioned TSM to conduct the study only because it was felt that the data being put out by the MIB was not reflecting the true on-ground situation.

 

We understand the ministry too has undertaken its own study of the market. Records at the MSO headends, sms activations etc have been looked into.

 

We now have a new I&B minister in Manish Tewari. It’s a big day for him today – October 29. His first working day as the minister. There is a taskforce meeting scheduled for today. And there’s a Mumbai High Court hearing coming up on the delay in digitization.

 

Loads happening. We’ll bring you all the news and analyses.
