A public interest litigation petition (PIL) filed in Telangana High Court, which seeks the cancelling of licenses of cable television networks, direct-to-home (DTH) service providers, unencrypted satellite networks, internet protocol television (IPTV) providers and multi system operators (MSO’s) for allegedly violating provisions of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Act. 

The PIL alleged that the Central tax authorities have been failed to collect GST from these networks who have been evading the tax collected from the consumers since 2017. In Khammam town alone, the said television networks have collected about ₹1.44 crore GST from the subscribers since 2017 and are not paying the same to the tax department. Such television networks have violated the provisions of GST Act by not registering themselves with an intention to evade the tax collection. According to the information  available under the Right to Information Act, most of the MSO in Telangana are converting the tax collected from subscribers into black money.
