Following the slugfest between English news channels on one side and Arnab Goswami’s Republic TV on the other over the issue of dual LCNs, TRAI has warned MSOs that it would take action if the regulation on this was violated. It has noted that several MSOs are placing some channels at more than one LCN under multiple genres simultaneously.
The top five wired broadband service providers were BSNL (9.98 mn), Bharti Airtel (2.08 mn), Atria Convergence Technologies (1.17 mn), MTNL (1.01 mn) and You Broadband (0.62 mn).
Both the petitions will be heard by the division bench of acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Any Malhotra. The appeals contend that TRAI’s tariff order and regulation violates Article 19 (1)(G) of the Constitution, which allows citizens “to practise any profession, or to carry on any occupation, trade or business”.
Much to the relief of Star India, the Supreme Court has stayed TRAI’s tariff order and interconnection regulation till the Madras HC decides on the broadcaster’s petition challenging the regulator’s powers to fix tariff for TV content. The apex court has also directed the Madras HC to conclude the matter in four weeks. The matter will come up for hearing on 12 June.
