TRAI orders ‘maximum bouquet price’ for high-end commercial establishments

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has notified tariff order for commercial subscribers in CAS and non-CAS areas holding that the bouquets offered to this category should be subject to restrictions on maximum bouquet price in relation to sum of individual channel prices.

“In order to ensure that this category also gets the choice of individual channels as well as bouquets in CAS areas, which is available to other consumers, the bouquets offered to this category in CAS areas will be subject to restrictions on maximum bouquet price in relation to sum of individual channel prices, which would also be the case for those commercial subscribers in non-CAS areas having their own head ends and other facilities to receive signals directly from the broadcasters,” the regulator held.

Such establishments have been defined as hotels with a grading of 3 Star and above as well as heritage hotels. This category will also include any other hotels, motels, inns and such other commercial establishments providing board and lodging and having 50 or more rooms.

However, the tariffs of pay channels as well as set-top box rentals for such establishments are proposed to be left to mutual agreements and market forces in both CAS and non-CAS areas on the ground that they are capable of protecting their interests.

The regulator has made it clear that other small commercial establishments have to be served as per the regulations laid down for ordinary subscribers.
