The company has recommended the government to provide some relief in license fee by reducing it from the current 10% to 6% as earlier recommended by Trai. Salil Kapoor COO Dish TV said, “The double charge of service tax and entertainment tax should be subsumed in Good and Service Tax.”

The company also said that the government should lessen the basic customs duty on digital head ends and set top boxes to zero for three years to give a boost to digitalization. Dish TV has 12.5 million subscribers and has a 29% market share among six players in the DTH market in the county.
