Help Govt to file civil appeal against Tdsat order on DTH licence fee
#1

NEW DELHI: The government is in the process of filing a civil appeal against the order of the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (Tdsat) which applied the principle of adjusted gross revenue for determination of annual licence fee by direct-to-home (DTH) operators.

“The government is readying to file against the Tdsat order,” Information and Broadcasting Ministry sources told Indiantelevision.com.

An appeal is already pending in the Supreme Court against an earlier order in this regard on 26 August 2008. The latest order came on 28 May this year.

Incidentally, the DTH operators want the licence fee to be reduced, which they feel is seriously damaging their profitability. The sector is steeped in losses amid strong subscriber growth due to stiff competition among the six private DTH operators and low cable TV ARPUs (average revenue per user).

damaging profitability to DTH operators is just not only because of the high licence fee but also the neck to neck competition among them and lots of tariff reduction offered by the DTH operators also may be the main reason for their losses!!!!
