The launch of the Broadcast Seva Portal in New Delhi on Monday has heralded a new chapter in Ease of Doing Business in the Broadcasting sector. 

Broadcast Seva Portal is an online portal solution for speedy filing and processing of applications of broadcasters for various kinds of licenses, permissions, registrations, etc.

The portal would bring Transparency, Accountability & Responsiveness in the ecosystem and all information will be available on a single dashboard. Various services and features of the portal includes: 

  • End-to-end processing
  • Integration with payment system (Bharat Kosh)
  • Integration with E-Office and stakeholder ministries
  • Analytics, Reporting and Management Information System (MIS)
  • Integrated Helpdesk
  • Application forms and status tracking
  • Downloading letters/orders from the portal itself
  • Alerts to stakeholders (SMS/E-Mails)

The portal was launched by the Union Minister of Information and Broadcasting, and Youth Affairs & sports Sri Anurag Thakur Singh.

Speaking on the occasion, Shri Anurag Thakur said Government has harnessed technology to bring transparency in the system and make it more accountable. The Broadcast Seva Portal will reduce the turnaround time of applications and at the same time will help applicants track the progress. This portal will reduce the human interface that was required earlier and thus add to the capacity building of the Ministry and will be a major step towards Ease of Doing Business.

Shri Thakur further added that the 360-degree digital solution will facilitate the stakeholders in seeking permissions, applying for registration, tracking applications, calculating fees and executing payments. This portal will provide its services under the wider umbrella efforts of Digital India to all stakeholders to private satellite TV channels, teleport operators, MSOs, community and private radio channels etc.
