The very purpose of the rule which says 80% of the stake and control must remain in the hands of the Indian partner is not the case in tata sky. Star Tv is calling all the shots. S0, 1) should Tata Sky be banned2) Should a rule be brought saying all 100% must be Indian owned?

you are not understanding what I am saying.Yes, tatas hold 80%; and the regulation says Indian company must have 80% because control must be in Indian hands.But, it seems that even though star group has just 20%, they say what to do.So, this violates the spirit of the law.Thats why I am asking whether Tata-sky should be banned.

Financially Tata have 80% however inside the managment they can't even claim 20% becoz the main content is owned by star(we could say its parent sky which is worlwide leader for dishTvs).HOWEVER why are you targetting them only(ther are others like Hutchiston- -Essar partnership) and what kind of drastik changes have you seen in past you are mentioning. They have just started now.

The law talks about financial stake only not runnning the service. What has Star done that calls for the ban? It is similar to any other sector...only the financial stake is covered.

But, after seeing what has happened in the last few days, it seems that even though star group has just 20%, they (star) are calling the shots. They say what to do. And it seems Tatas are just giving a nod for everything.

So, this violates the spirit of the law.

What did you see in the past few days?

well sky gives technology, star gives entertainment and tatas give money.its as simple as that.and abt banning, well most of india watches star (ekta) channels. sorevenue anyway goes to star, the foreign company. so instead of banninganything we should ban ourself from watching star channels.(which no1 can)
