1.It is not necessary to take permissin from the police station.

2.You have to register with the Local Head Post Master in a prescribed format i.e., in Form No:1 of The Cable Television Networks(regulation) act, 1995 along with the prescribed fees.  No person shall operate a cable television network unless he is registered as a cable operatior under the act.

After registration you have to follow the conditions:

1. Programme Code ( nothing in this section shall apply to the programmes of foreign satelite channels which can be received without the use of any specialised gadgets or decoder.)

2. Advertisement code

Maintenance of register

Compuslory transmission of two Doordarshan channels

Use of standrard equipment in cable television network

It is not necessary to take the permission from the co-operative society to lay cable from the building, but they may resist.

Dear Querist,


Much has been advised by Ld. brother Mr. Rajeev. Apart from procedures, you may like to note that disputes if any can be resolved in TDSAT (Telecom Disputes Settlement & Appellate Tribunal), New Delhi for resolving intra party or inter-party disputes involving MSOs and COs.


Trust this would suffice.
