Hearing on 10+2 ad cap case in Delhi HC today

The 10+2 ad cap case is scheduled for hearing in the Delhi High Court today, March 13, 2014. It may be recalled that the High Court had given temporary relief of around three months to broadcasters in the case in the last hearing that took place on December 2013.

The case will be presented in front of Justice Siddharth Mridul. Some of the parties associated with the case include News Broadcasters Association (NBA), B4U, 9X Media, TV Vision, Sun TV Network, E24, and Kalaignar TV against the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI).

The petitioners’ side is represented by Nish Bhambani, Nidhi Jain, Ankur Sood, GS Mani, and Abhishek Malhotra, while Saket Singh represents the respondent’s side.

In its December 2013 hearing, the Delhi High Court in its interim order had asked TRAI not to take any coercive action against the news broadcasters for not following the 12-minute mandated ad cap. The broadcasters were asked to send their weekly advertisement data to TRAI. The order was passed following a writ petition filed by the broadcasters on December 17, 2013 to get the ad cap reviewed quickly. The next date for hearing was March 13, 2014.
