Broadcasters to meet TRAI chief on January 27

Broadcasters under the aegis of Indian Broadcasting Foundation (IBF) will make a representation to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI). On the controversial issue of CAS implementation, earlier this week, IBF had raised an issue about them being not consulted by TRAI before taking decisions on cable TV rates.

TRAI had earlier issued a Consultation Note on Issues relating to Broadcasting and Cable Services on January 15, 2004

As per the TRAI order, the payout (consumers to cable operators; cable operators to multi-system operators (MSOs); and MSOs to broadcasters) amount throughout the country would prevail as on December 26, 2003 rates. Since the Delhi high court had on December 26 directed that CAS must continue for three months on a trial basis, the same date had been taken for specifying the ceiling rates. These rates would be applicable till further orders from the regulator. Some broadcasters, who had recently increased their subscription rates, are upset with the TRAI order.
