1 min read

The supreme court of India on tuesday stayed the Delhi high court bar on prasar bharati sharing its Doordarshan feed with local cable operators.

The stay came from a bench led By Justice Ranjan Gogoi ahead of ICC world cup 2015.

The matter is now listed for 17th february 2015 and the apex court ordered that the stay shall continue to operate till next date of hearing.

Despite the plea of Star India through Senior Advocate P. Chidambaram  that Star India would suffer heavy revenue losses as the matter is pending for seven years and equity should be balanced, the bench refused to oblige.

The supreme court meanwhile asked private channels and BBCI to come with their proposals to amicably resolve the dispute.
