The Telecom Disputes Settlement & Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) has adjourned the direct-to-home (DTH) licence fee case to 23 August. Earlier, the tribunal had put up the matter for hearing on 25 February.

The matter has since then been adjourned several times. It last came up for hearing on 10 May.


DTH operators have been pleading for adjourning the licence fee case as some connected matters are pending before different high courts.

They have filed appeals in various HCs to secure interim relief from payment of annual licence fee on 10% of gross revenue.

In November 2015, Dish TV and Sun Direct had secured interim relief from the Jammu & Kashmir and Kerala High Court on the licence fee issue.

The DTH operators had moved TDSAT in 2014 after the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting (MIB) had sent notices directing them to pay licence fee totalling Rs 2,066 crore ( Rs 20.66 billion).

The TDSAT had directed the MIB not to take coercive action until the matter is pending.

The DTH operators had challenged the licence fee demand on the contention that the matter was pending before the Supreme Court.

In February 2015, the tribunal had said that it would hear the licence fee case only after the matter was decided by the Supreme Court, where it had been pending for a long time.

The hearing in the case resumed once the SC disposed of the appeals filed by Tata Sky and the Union Government on 27 August.

Presently, DTH operators are required to pay 10% of gross revenue as licence fee to the government.

The DTH operators contend that the licence fee should be paid only on subscription revenue.
