Cablemen ready to cross CAS path

Cable operators will continue to charge the present rates if the central government does not change its stance on the Rs-72 fee for cable operators, starting August 1, said Cable Operators’ Sangram Committee spokesperson Tarak Saha on Sunday. Committee members had been meeting cable operators in the city and its surrounding areas for the past week and taken the decision when the Centre refused to respond to their appeal. “Since broadcasters and multi-system operators have made it clear that they are going to continue to take their share of the commission, we have no option but to continue charging the July rates till an acceptable decision is taken,” Saha added.
