A report published in indiantelevision states that, The Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (Tdsat) has fixed 7 August, for hearing the petitions by multi-system operators Digicable Networks, Mumbai, and Delhi Distribution Company, New Delhi and others challenging the digital tariff order of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India.
The tribunal has also notified the same to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI).
Earlier, TDSAT had listed for 25 August a petition by IndusInd Media and Communications in this regard, even as it permitted News Broadcaster's Association (NBA) and associate channels - NDTV, Time Global Broadcasting (holding company of Times Now), India TV, TV Today, Total TV, Indian Broadcasting Foundation (IBF), and other broadcasters to be a party to it.
The LCOs (local cable operators) had refrained to the Trai tariff order. United Cable Operator's Welfare Association, New Delhi, has approached the Tdsat seeking better revenue share from the MSOs and an extension in date for digitisation.
