Mr.Deepak Tapse and Mr.Shravan
Please go through the Explanaltion to Section 194C wherein "work" has been defined.
"broadcasting and telecasting including production of programmes for such broadcasting or telecasting"
You said that you have taken number of cable connections. Through the cable the cable operator telecasts the television programmes. Hence the services of the cable operator "work" as per the provisions of section 194C. You have to deduct tax at source at the prevailing rates.
