The Bombay High Court on Tuesday issued notices to TRAI against the writ petition on the NTO.2.0 filed by the Indian Broadcasting Foundation IBF.

The IBF on Monday had filed a writ petition against the regulatory body seeking a stay on the implementation of the new order. The Court has called both the parties for the next hearing and interim relief on January 22. The petition has been filed separately by IBF and all leading broadcasters. TRAI is required to file an affidavit in response to broadcaster petitions by 20 January 2020.

On January 1, TRAI had issued the amendment and had asked the broadcasters to come up with the new price list of channels by January 15.
