TDSAT disposes of NSTPL’s petition against MSM Discovery

MUMBAI: The Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal has disposed of Noida Software Technology Park Ltd’s (NSTPL) petition against MSM Discovery after the HITS operator made its outstanding payment in the form of postdated cheques.

NSTPL had moved TDSAT after MSM Discovery had deactivated the signals of its channels alleging non-payment of outstanding dues and non-execution of interconnect agreement due to non-submission of valid HITS licence.

NSTPL counsel Vivek Chib handed over cheques amounting Rs 6.4 million to MSM Discovery counsel Abhishek Malhotra. All the cheques were dated 12 September.

The tribunal disposed of the petition observing that nothing survives in the matter after the petitioner made the payment.

In an earlier order dated 1 August, the tribunal had directed NSTPL and MSM Discovery to execute the interconnect agreement within ten days. The tribunal had also directed MSM Discovery to restore the supply of its channels to NSTPL latest by morning of 2 August.
