DTH delight in Dubai.(Indian Jugar)


Read an article in ET didn't found a link on ET website so trying to reproduce this interesting piece of information.

We Indians are known to be Jugari ie expert in make shift arrangements.The latest jugar left me wondering about the Indian thinking mind.

NRI living in Dubai were using Local DTH at an exorbitant cost of INR 1800/ month.How ever there family in India were boasting of a world class DTH service for INR 200/month.

So the Jugari Indian NRI got an extra DTH connection back home on his Trip to home got the service activated in India.While going back to Dubai he carried only the Set top box ,bought a local dish antenna got it aligned to the Indian DTH satellite and Bingo Indian DTH at Indian cost in Dubai.He he...

But the flip side is its illegal and service providers will discontinue the service when they come to know.

The Indian DTH industry has nothing to lose in this but the real damage is to the Gulf DTH operators.Without getting into the technicality of the issue i look at this episode as an example of Jugari Indian Thinking.
