Trai extends time for stakeholders to provide financial details

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) has asked all stakeholders - broadcasters, aggregators (that is, authorised distributors of the broadcasters), DTH operators, multi-system operators, cable operators and consumer advocacy groups – to submit their financial structure and operational details by 22 September. The latest revision in dates has been taken keeping in view the request by several stakeholders that the information has to be collated and would take time. Trai had initially asked the stakeholders to submit their details by 17 August, which it later extended to 31 August.

The Supreme Court had, in its order dated 13 May, directed the sector regulator to consider the matter relating to tariff for cable TV services in non-Cas areas regarding all aspects. Trai had, thereafter, decided to study the matter anew and sought the information to obtain a realistic understanding of the operation of various stakeholders, for which it prepared the formats for collecting information. Trai has drawn the attention of all the stakeholders to the court’s order of 13 May, passed in Civil Appeal No. 829-833 of 2009, wherein the court directed all parties to cooperate with the sector regulator so as to enable it to carry out the exercise. The Tdsat, in its order dated 15 January, had said non-cooperation in the exercise, including non-furnishing of information, will be viewed as violation of the said order.
