Indian Broadcasting sector is a sunrise sector for the economy making high growth strides. Indian media industry is on the cusp of a strong phase of growth, backed by rising consumer demand and improving advertising revenues. The Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflows in the Information and Broadcasting sector (including Print Media) in the period April 2000 – March 2016 stood at US$ 4.98 billion, as per data released by Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP).
The government has been steadily liberalizing FDI framework for this sector to move towards a digital addressable system because the higher FDI permission would mean higher investments for ensuring digitalization.
FDI up to 49% by way of Government route is permitted in the Broadcasting Content Services in case of Terrestrial Broadcasting FM (FM radio) and in Up-linking of ‘News and Current affairs’ TV channels. FDI up to 100% under automatic route is permitted in Up-linking of ‘Non-News and Current Affairs’ TV channels.
