This chapter on satellite communication policy in India aims to deliver first hand information and gives insight into the satellite invasion in the country. The Government passed cable bill from time to time to regulate the operation of cable television networks, seeing the haphazard mushrooming of cable television networks all over the country. In the last few years, foreign television network started to enter India. This has been perceived as a ‘cultural invasion’ in many quarters since the programs available on these satellite channels is predominantly western and totally alien to Indian cultures. This chapter briefly studies the communication policy in India and intends to answer some pertinent questions like –the question of autonomy of Doordarshan, the policy of expansion of television network, the software policy for television, the need for setting up new broadcasting regulations to meet the global media trends. As a part of conclusion, we try to come out with a solution for proper balance of information sharing and development of satellite communication in India.
