|Exemption in Spectrum Fee for Community Radio|
|The Minister of State for Communications & Information Technology Sh Milind Deora informed the Lok Sabha today that the increase in Spectrum Charges for Community Radio is due to revision of spectrum charges with effect from 1st April 2012 for all captive users, including community radio stations. On this some representations have been received from various organisations including Community radio forums, requesting either exemption from paying spectrum fee or for roll back.|
He said a high level Committee in Department of Telecom has been constituted to look into various issues raised in such representations. The Committee has submitted its report but no decision has been taken in this regard.
