Sources aware of the development informed exchange4media that the apex court Bench heard the arguments and reserved its order on Thursday. The bench is expected to announce the verdict within 15 days.

The hearing of the matter pertaining to the TRAI tariff order and interconnection regulation saw several adjournments.

On July 3, 2018, TRAI had implemented the Telecommunication (Broadcasting and Cable) Interconnection (Addressable Systems) Regulations 2017 after it was upheld by the Madras High Court with an exception. While bringing the order into effect, the TRAI had prescribed timelines for the stakeholders. The deadline for compliance was August 31, 2018.

Most of the major broadcasters have already published their Reference Interconnect Offer (RIO) along with the Interconnection Agreement.
