DTH Relocation In India: The General Procedure

With multiple DTH networks available, it might be confusing to understand the general relocation process. While the specific DTH relocation process might differ based on the provider, the general procedure follows a similar pattern. There are two main steps to follow:-

  1. Uninstallation of existing equipment, including dismantling the dish, set-top box and other accessories
  2. Re-installation in the preferred location

Each DTH service provider will have a customer care section dealing with relocations. You will have to register to uninstall your equipment. You have to call them up or email them and inform them of your intention to relocate.

What To Ask Your Service Provider Before DTH Relocation

  • How much time is required for uninstallation?
  • What charges are involved?
  • How much time till the re-installation takes place?

What Documents Are Required For DTH Relocation?

  • New address details and proof
  • Valid ID proof

The relocation process has to be followed even if the relocation is within the same premises. The relocation steps may differ according to each provider. You will have to check with your specific dealer to know the exact details.
