Ad cap case: Next hearing in Delhi HC on May 6

There is further some further respite for the broadcasters as the Delhi High Court has fixed the next date for hearing in the 10+2 ad cap case on May 6, 2014. As is known, the case came up for hearing in the Court today, March 13.

The case was 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.

Meanwhile, it is learnt that the petitioner side will file a rejoinder reply in this case and has sought a time period of four weeks.

Saket Singh, the counsel for TRAI, the respondent in this case, pointed out, “In some cases, a few broadcasters have been found violating the ad cap rules, with the violations sometimes extending to almost 20 hours a day.” The counsel pleaded for an early hearing in the case.

In its December 2013 hearing, the Delhi High Court had given temporary relief of around three months to broadcasters when it 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.
