HARVEST TV BECOMES TIRANGA TV

Post by VilasG » Sun Mar 17, 2019 12:10 pm

The TDSAT has granted interim relief to Kapil Sibal backed TV news channel to change its name from Harvest TV to Tiranga TV.

The channel operated by Veecon Media and Broadcasting Pvt Ltd, had 2 year right to use the name Harvest TV. That permission expired on 31 January 2018. Veecon had permission from the I&B Ministry to use the name and logo 'Harvest TV' & has been pursuing its case with the I&B Ministry for the change of name since September 2017.

Kerala-based Christian devotional channel Harvest TV, owned by Bibi George Chacko, has accused Veecon of "riding on the goodwill and reputation of Harvest TV" by using its name and logo.

Tiranga TV has undertaken not to use the colours of the national flg in its logo, as it may be against the relevant provisions of 1950 Act and Flag Code, 2002.

TDSAT said in its order, "Without expressing any final opinion on the issue noticed above, we are of the considered view that the name Tiranga itself is not covered by the Schedule of 1950 Act nor is subject matter of Flag Code. However, this may not strictly apply to the use of the three colors which is there in the emblem of Tiranga TV."
