SC green signal to TRAI to hold consultation on DTH pricing
Advertisement
#1
New Delhi, May 4 The Supreme Court today directed the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India to go ahead with its consultations related to fixing of tariffs for direct-to- home services.

A bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan while issuing notice to TRAI, Zee Turner, Tata Sky Ltd, ETC Punjabi, and others allowed the regulator to hold consultations with all stakeholders-- DTH operators, broadcasters, cable operators and consumers -- for regulating DTH content prices.

The order was passed on a plea by Indian Broadcasting Foundation (IBF) challenging the Punjab and Haryana High Court order that directed TRAI to fix tariffs in relation to DTH content pricing.

IBF alleged that there was no need to invite fresh responses"in a hurried and haphazard manner"as the existing criteria of 2007 to determine the tariff was quite objective and no purpose would be served in replicating the exercise all over again.
