NBA likely to file fresh case in High Court against ad cap diktat

In a significant decision, the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) has dismissed the 10+2 ad cap case filed by the News Broadcasters Association (NBA) and other broadcasters such as B4U, 9X Media and E24 (TDSAT dismisses NBA’s ad cap case, directed to go to High Court). Now, all the petitioners need to directly go to the High Court for all hearings against the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s (TRAI) regulations.

The Tribunal’s ruling came after the Supreme Court on December 6, 2013 ruled, “TDSAT has no power to interfere in TRAI’s recommendations.”

Following this development, NBA is likely to move the High Court and file a fresh case.

When asked what NBA’s next move would be, a senior member of the Association, on condition of anonymity, said, “The order has been passed just today and we will have to examine the implications of the same. We will agree on the actions within NBA and then decide what to do.”

When asked whether NBA will file a fresh case in High Court, he replied, “NBA is discussing the next steps, nothing has been decided yet.”

When asked the same question, NBA’s General Secretary, Annie Joseph, replied, “Going by the Supreme Court order, that is the option we have, which we have to discuss and decide.”
