Pak Authorities seize smuggled Indian & other DTH Equipment worth 7.8 Crore in a Nationwide Crackdown

November 8,2018:

Pakistan Authorities have seized the smuggled Indian and the other Direct-To-Home (DTH) equipment worth Rs 7.83 Crore from various markets in a nation-wide crack down against illegal devices, according to a Report.

Report was submitted to Pakistan Supreme Court after Apex Court took up a suo motu of the cognizance case relating to easy availability of the Indian DTH or magic box in Pakistani Market.

DTH Satellite TV is latest technology to deliver the Digital TV satellite service to the households.

Pakistan SC’s two-judge bench headed by Justice Ijaz-ul-Ahsan was also told that 30 FIRs had been lodged during the crackdown and 39 people arrested by the Customs Department and the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), the Dawn reported.

Report was furnished before Supreme Court through Additional Attorney General Nayyar Abbas Rizvi, who stated that nationwide enforcement operations has ended the commercial sale and availability of smuggled DTH equipment in the local markets.

Report recalled that Federal Board of Revenue has also enhanced the Enforcement measures adopted by customs field formations which resulted in seizures of goods and other contraband items, including DTH equipment worth Rs24.8 billion during 2017-18.

However, report conceded that mere enforcement measures would not be sufficient to completely root out the transportation or availability of DTH equipment used for illegal broadcasting of Indian content in the country. Therefore, a holistic strategy needs to be worked out by all agencies/regulators to address this issue.

The committee constituted by the apex court proposed measures like the PEMRA’s suggestion to grant concessions from duty or taxes for the import of equipment and other accessories to successful bidders in the awarding of DTH licences a process which is in progress and likely to be completed soon.

The PEMRA has also suggested a technological solution which can effectively disrupt the reception and rebroadcast of Indian content using smuggled DTH equipment or those imported through regular channels after modifications by the local vendors, the report said.
