New Delhi:Delhi High Court today issued notices to the Ministries of Information and Broadcasting and Sports and Prasar Bharati on a petition filed by ESPN-STAR Sports challenging Centre guidelines for down-linking, which makes it mandatory for private channels to share footage of national and international sports events with Doordarshan.

Justice Vikramjith Sen asked the respondent ministries and Prasar Bharti to file their replies by January 18, the next date of hearing.

The Court, however, refused to grant any interim stay to restrain the government from acting on the guidelines issued on November 11, 2005.
