the Rs.918 billion estimated media and entertainment industry in India is pinning renewed hopes on the new regime and clamouring for change be it the push for cable digitisation de-regulation in pricing of channels tax waivers or implementation of new foreign direct investment (FDI) norms as per the recommendations of the Telecom Regulatory Authority Of India (Trai) Sudhanshu Vats group chief executive of Viacom 18 Group says that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has laid down the mantra of ‘less government and more governance’ and has followed his ideals with a cabinet team that looks both consistent and promising He adds that the appointment of Prakash Javadekar as the information and broadcasting minister is a key move – especially because of his active bent towards transparency and efficiency in introducing e-governance in state level processes and general administration in the past In his party manifesto Modi highlighted the geographical and cultural diversity of India points out Vats “With such a varied landscape we have so much to offer in terms of entertainment and tourism Imagine the possibilities if the two were combined – it would generate employment opportunities galore and there is exceptional potential to explore this space with creativity” The Indian media and entertainment sector is expected to touch Rs17858 billion by 2018 with a compounded average growth rate (CAGR) of 142 per cent according to a report released by Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) and advisory firm KPMG By the end of 2014 the industry is expected to stand at Rs1039 billion As per Vats the contribution of the media and entertainment sector to India’s gross domestic product (GDP) is under 1per cent whereas it is 25 per cent in most other countries Vats says that pricing anomalies digitisation and discrepancies in clearance mechanisms are matters of concern and the industry could flourish if these issues are resolved “The regulatory policy framework especially with regard to broadcasting is a concern every one of my colleagues has voiced – whether at informal platforms or on formal forums A more democratic approach towards catering to India’s pluralist society and seeking people’s views to delivering self-regulated content would be far more preferable” asserts Vats Vats observes that both the government and the new Prime Minister have demonstrated an “evolved” approach in their election strategy Since this government understands the changing pulse of the nation and macro-trends a similar thought process could be expected in terms of media and entertainment regulation as well Sunil Lulla president corporate brand development at Bennett Coleman and Co Ltd (BCCL) said that the new government must further its embrace towards self regulation in all matters of media and communication “It should liberalise (foreign) investment in news on television to 49 per cent It should ensure that news is permitted on radio Digitisation of cable must continue with a stringent follow-through on subscriber declaration What is the point of taxing the common man’s source of entertainment which is already priced the lowest in the world” he asks As per Lulla the industry self regulatory body – the Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI) – should continue to be supported by the government and its activities should be further strengthened by strong action by both the government and the courts Lulla further says that there should be one body for administration of this sector and there shouldn’t be interference in marketplace related activities such as the advertising cap which restricts broadcasters from making full use of inventory There should be transparency in all aspects related to licensing he adds Vats believes that general concerns revolve around the transparency and accessibility of concerned officials in the value chain Quick turnaround time is what the entertainment industry is looking for as far as licences and permissions are concerned “The Broadcast Audience Research Council is slated to come into force by October this year We hope that will indeed happen so that the broadcasting industry will inch closer to overcoming ad cap hurdles and establish clean next practices in the media and entertainment industry” Foreign broadcast networks have their own concerns Al Jazeera the Doha based broadcaster owned by Al Jazeera Media Network says that for an international news organisation like it a smoother visa process and accreditation is important “We hope that the new government will find faster and easier ways of ensuring access for international journalists” says Anmol Saxena bureau chief Al Jazeera English “We are also hoping that the new government will continue the digitisation push” Direct to home (DTH) companies say that they are already reeling under exorbitant licence fees coupled with other taxes Cable digitisation on the other hand is still under way which is why the market has not reached its true potential Harit Nagpal managing director and chief executive at Tata Sky said that hyper-competition is ensuring the availability of all possible content at dirt cheap prices “Yet this sector has a ministry and a regulator” he says The DTH companies would expect a tightening of controls on the content distribution side Nagpal says “One third of our revenue not profits is taken away by the licence fee entertainment tax and service tax” He questions the double taxation that DTH companies are put through “We are the only category that pays tax on the same service both to the states and the central government While we are not questioning the government’s right to tax rationalising the licence fees to 6 per cent from 10 per cent and abatement of service tax till GST (goods and service tax) is introduced will help” he says Shashi Sinha chief executive of IPG Mediabrands says that he hopes that the new regime will put its weight behind the activities of the Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) the body instituted to bring in a new system of television ratings in India He adds that ASCI has for long kept a check on errant advertising in India and its rulings on television ads have been given due legitimacy by law in the form of the Cable TV Networks (Regulation) Act Sinha hopes that the government would give a similar legal push to the regulation of advertising in the print and digital medium Radio has seen its share of roadblocks In July 2013 Trai had proposed increasing the FDI limit for private FM radio broadcasting to 49 per cent in a consultation paper The move was to ensure better participation in the next phase of auctions – Phase 3 However neither the auctions nor the proposed FDI limit has materialised says Asheesh Chatterjee chief financial officer of Reliance Broadcast Network Ltd which runs 927 Big FM In the phase 3 auction 839 new FM stations were expected to come up; expanding the coverage of FM radio to 313 cities from 87 Chatterjee also refers to contentious points in the Phase 3 guidelines For instance radio operators are allowed to run news and current affairs but the sourcing of such content should happen through the government owned Prasar Bharti Also radio operators can cover sports content – live events of local importance but the guidelines remains vague in terms of interpretation Radio frequency is measured in kilohertz (kHz) Chatterjee points out that currently the space between two radio frequencies is 800 KHz which means that fewer number of stations can be accommodated in the spectrum Trai had earlier recommended that this be reduced to 400 KHz which will allow more genres and stations to spring up Currently the limited bandwidth does not give enough leg room says Chatterjee “A city such as Mumbai has only eight radio stations whereas there are around 40-50 radio stations in metropolitan cities outside India” he says He hopes that the government will allow for tax waivers custom duty waivers on equipment deferred payment formula etc.
