Indiavision was a Malayalam language news channel based at Thiruvanthapuram, Kerala.[2][3]


Indiavision Satellite Communications Limited launched Indiavision under the chairmanship of M. K. Muneer on 14 July 2003. M. K. Muneer resigned from post of Indiavision Chairman in 2011, on being the minister.[4] Jamaludheen Farooquee is the resident director. Indiavision launched its second channel, YES Indiavision (Youth, Entertainment & Sports) on 14 February 2007. Due to certain internal problems the channel has stopped airing 31 March 2015.

The company was in the news twice in 2014 when its editorial team went on strike over non-payment of salaries. In latest developments, service tax raids were conducted at the channel's main office in Kochi and the resident director Jamaludeen Farooqi was arrested on 4 March 2015. According to reports, the channel hadn't paid service tax to the tune of almost Rs. 9 crore.[5]

In accordance with an order from Ernakulam judicial first magistrate court, on 11 March 2014, Kerala Police registered a case against Indiavision channel and some other media organizations, in response to a petition[6] accusing of insulting religious sentiments. Indiavision was booked under Sections 153A (Promoting enmity between different groups on ground of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, etc., and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony), 153 B (imputations, assertions prejudicial to national integration), 295A (deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs), 298 (uttering words, etc., with deliberate intent to wound religious feelings), 120B (criminal conspiracy) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the Indian Penal Code.[7]
