TRAI to hold open house meeting on new DTH licences on Dec 10

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) will be holding an open house discussion on issues related to new DTH licenses on Tuesday, December 10, 2013.

Earlier, TRAI had released a consultation paper on extension of DTH licence. The matter comes under TRAI’s umbrella as the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting had sent a reference letter to the regulatory authority on September 30, 2013, asking about the terms and conditions for extension of DTH license on expiry of the 10-year period.

The key issues discussed in the consultation paper pertain to entry fee, bank guarantee and licence fee.

The matter came to the fore when the licence period of Dish TV ended on September 30, 2013 and there were no recommendations of renewing licence or paying licence fee.

TRAI has sought comments from stakeholders and has extended the last date for receiving comments on a supplementary consultation paper on issues related to new DTH licences to December 5, 2013 after the stakeholders failed to respond with their comments.
