TDSAT comes heavily on South Delhi operator, directs to clear Rs 1.55 crore dues immediately

The Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal has heavily come down on a South Delhi operator, AM Trinity Platco. It has directed the operator to clear a huge outstanding of Rs 1.55 crore towards Zee Turner Limited immediately, along with the interest of 10 per cent per annum from the due date till the payment is made.

AM Trinity Platco had been authorised by Zee Turner to subscribe and distribute the signals of its various channels. The network was distributing the channels in various colonies in South Delhi to the declared subscriber base of 24,000 households. It was beginning to default to pay the agreed subscription charges to Zee Turner and consequently, a huge outstanding of Rs 1.55 crore mounted, which was not cleared by the network even after receiving reminders from Zee Turner.

When repeated requests and legal notices to clear the outstanding failed to make an impact on the operator, Zee Turner was forced to deactivate its signals and thereafter filed a petition with TDSAT. On the basis of the facts and hearing the arguments of both the parties, TDSAT directed the operator to clear the outstanding, along with an interest of 10 per cent.

A spokesperson from Zee Turner said, “We are extremely delighted with TDSAT’s landmark judgment. For an industry like ours where cable operators easily get away with huge outstanding payments, a directive like this comes as a big relief. We have full faith in the judiciary and this judgement has further strengthened our confidence. We are hopeful that the operator will exhibit the similar respect towards the court’s order by immediately clearing our outstanding dues.”

Zee Turner is the joint venture partner of Zee Telefilms and Turner International for distribution of its channels in India. Some of the channels being distributed by Zee Turner include Zee TV, Zee Cinema, ETC Punjabi, Cartoon Network and POGO.
