As reported in May 2018, the I&B ministry had revoked the licences of Sudarshan, A to Z, A to Z Documentary and Telefilms, and Dharma (Sai TV). The Ministry cancelled the licences due to non-response of the company and non-submission of permission fees.
While Sudarshan and A To Z are news licences, A to Z Documentary and Telefilms and Dharma (Sai TV) are non-news licences.
Incorporated in 2007 by Suresh Chavhanke and his wife Maya Chavhanke, STCL has experience of five years in the business of television media and is performing both tasks -the collection of news content as well as broadcasting; however, some work of up-linking and down-linking has been outsourced.
At present, it is running two news channels, Sudarshan News from 2007 and A to Z News from 2009; and one devotional channel, Sai TV from 2014.
