The Indian Phonographic Industry (IPI), the Association of Phonogram Producers, was established in 1936, and it was instrumental in finalising the Broadcasting Licence arrangement in India. Subsequently, IPI members decided to form a specialised body to administer their Public Performance and Broadcasting Rights, and so PPL came into being in 1941.
We, Phonographic Performance Ltd. (PPL) exclusively control “Public Performance rights” and “Radio Broadcasting” rights for 300+ music labels with more than 1.5 million international and 0.8 million domestic songs that we offer for this purpose by virtue of assignment and /or license and/or transfer of these rights to us in accordance with Sec. 18 and 30 of the Copyright Act 1957. We represent a lion’s share in Hindi and Regional (Marathi, Bengali, Punjabi, Kannada, Malayalam, Telugu, Tamil and many more) repertoire, and control repertoire of all International Music majors for public performance. Our repertoire includes film and non-film songs in various genres like, pop, rock, EDM, dance, jazz, hip-hop, devotional, and classical.
