TDSAT to hear DTH CPE case on 7 Oct
MUMBAI: The Telecom Disputes Settlement & Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) has adjourned the direct-to-home (DTH) customer premises equipment (CPE) case to 7 October.
According to a source, the hearing in the matter will commence on 7 October.
The DTH Association, Videocon d2h and Sun Direct had appealed against TRAI’s tariff order for CPE that capped the installation and activation charges for DTH CPE at Rs 450.
TRAI had also asked DTH operators to mandatorily offer an outright purchase scheme called Standard Scheme for all types of CPE on a standalone basis. They are required to provide free maintenance and repairs of CPE for three years after installation/activation.
The DTH operators have contended that TRAI has failed to address relevant issues while framing the tariff order. They want the tariff order to be set aside.
The tribunal had earlier set aside TRAI’s 27 May 2013 tariff order and asked it to conduct fresh exercise based on the inputs provided by the DTH operators and addressing the issues raised by them.
