Broadcasting regulator Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) is “open to fine-tuning the new cable TV tariff regime to address any aberrations".

This has been said by TRAI chairman RS Sharma, according to a leading English daily.

Sharma reportedly said that when a new thing is put in place, one always notices that in some areas, things are not working out the way it had been imagined, or in some areas some finetuning is required.

“We are first looking at (whether) there are any aberrations in the implementation in the tariff order as it exists, and rectify them. We're looking at this carefully and collecting data and will fine-tune at the right time," he was quoted as saying.

The new tariff order came into force early this year. As per the order, consumers can pay only for the channels that they want to see and all the channels will be individually priced. This, however, led to an increase in the monthly bills of some customers, who expressed dissatisfaction.
