Flashed yesterday: SC grants stay on TRAI's tariff order regulations

A division bench of the Supreme Court comprising of Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose and Justice Rohinton Fali Narman has ceded to the demands of Star India by granting a stay on the tariff order and interconnect regulations. While the order pertaining to the special leave petition filed before the Supreme Court is awaited, sources at Star India confirmed to exchange4media that its plea had succeeded.

Earlier, the division bench of the Madras High Court led by Chief Justice Indira Banerjee had dismissed Star’s plea for an interim stay as it felt that the broadcaster had failed to make a strong prima facie case. Following the expiry of the May 2 deadline set by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), Star India complied with the regulations by publishing its Reference Interconnection Offer (RIO).

In the proceedings before the Supreme Court, Star was represented by the legal firm Karanjawala & Co., whereas Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion’s (DIPP) advocates were Navin Chawla and Sanjay Kapur. Star had previously engaged former Finance Minister P Chidambaram who had argued on behalf of it before the Madras HC. The concerned petition was hit due to the recusal of three judges, namely, Justice S Nagamuthu, Justice Anita Sumanth and Justice S Manikumar.
