TRAI notifies amended tariff order for commercial subscribers
MUMBAI: The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has notified the tariff order amendment pertaining to commercial subscribers subscribing to cable TV services.
The salient features of this tariff order are:
• The commercial establishments who do not specifically charge its clients/guests on account of providing/showing television programmes and offer such services as part of amenities are to be treated like ordinary subscribers wherein the charges would be on per television basis.
• In cases where commercial subscribers specifically charge its clients/guests on account of providing/showing television programmes the tariff would be as mutually agreed between the broadcaster and the commercial subscriber.
• In all cases, the commercial subscriber to obtain television service only from a distribution platform operator (MSO/DTH Operator/IPTV operator/HITS operator).
The tariff order amendment has been brought out as per the directions of the Supreme Court. It is expected that with the coming into force of these changes in the regulatory framework, the distribution of TV services to the commercial subscribers would be streamlined and the services would be available to them at competitive rates.
