E-auction will be held in decreasing order of Reserve Price

i) In the first-round e-auction will be held for five slots or the number of applications received for bucket A+, whichever is less.
ii) In the second-round e-auction will be held for five slots or the number of applications received for bucket A, whichever is less.
iii) In the third-round e-auction will be held for five slots or the number of applications received for bucket B, whichever is less.
iv) In the fourth-round e-auction will be held for five slots or the number of applications received for bucket C, whichever is less.
v) In the fifth-round e-auction will be held for five slots or the number of applications received for bucket D, whichever is less.

After the above, the remaining slots will be auctioned bucket wise starting again from bucket A+ and will progressively go from bucket A+ to bucket D till such time there are no more biddersin a given bucket or there are no more vacant slots left. This will ensure a fair genre wise distribution in the Free Dish bouquet.

Thanks. Main point is they have initially decided 5 slots per round for each bucket. Since only 4 channels won A+ slot means only 4 applications were received.
