India has made significant strides in economic growth and development of its markets for businesses, thus emerging as one the fastest growing economies in the world. A business-friendly environment is a pre-requisite for the growth of a nation. A favourable business environment makes the country a favourite business destination. It not only leads to employment generation but also helps in the growth and development of an economy.

The Indian Media and Entertainment (M&E) industry is a sunrise sector for the economy and it is on the cusp of a strong phase of growth, backed by rising consumer demand and improving advertising revenues. The industry has been largely driven by increasing digitization and higher internet usage over the last decade. The Authority proposes to go for a consultation with the stakeholders for identifying issues that are required to be addressed for Ease of Doing Business in the broadcasting sector.

Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) had in this regard issued a Consultation Paper on “Ease of Doing Business in Broadcasting Sector” dated 31st July, 2017. The last date for submission of suggestions is 18th September, 2017.

Let there be an online synergy between the departments of Government of India involved to for monitoring, no red-taped delay and faster sanctions to broadcasting companies. The idea of having different clearances for SD, HD and 4K channels can be repealed and if needed, distribution bandwidth may be increased. Rules must be made tougher so that no shell or fraud or small-time unorganized entity can charge exorbitant rates taking advantage of non-availability of renowned broadcasters in an area.
