The regulator expected broadcasters to implement the provision of Tariff Amendment Order 2020, and Interconnection Amendment Regulations, 2020 but instead they have started violating the provisions of Tariff Order, 2017 itself by modifying the composition of bouquet and discontinuation of their existing bouquets, in a manner beneficial to them but adversely affecting interest of the consumers.

Few broadcasters have started asking distribution platform operators (DPOs) to accept new bouquets with revised prices with one major broadcaster recently discontinuing low priced bouquets so that consumers could take new higher priced bouquet thereby increasing their monthly payout.

The new bouquets being pushed by the broadcaster is not compliant with the new provisions of the Tariff Amendment Order 2020 and the broadcaster interestingly hasn’t even informed the regulator in clear violation of reporting requirements required in the Tariff Order, 2017.

The move has set in motion due to the revised prices announced by some broadcasters which are take into effect from 1st August, 2020. The authority noted that there was possibility that other broadcasters could possibly start similar malpractices thereby nullifying the legal framework laid down for regulation.
The regulator has now pushed for the immediate implementation of NTO 2.0 to promote orderly growth of the sector and to balance the interests of the service providers and to safeguard the interest of the customers.

Here’s why TRAI kept quite on NTO 2.0 and is now pushing broadcasters to comply | DreamDTH
