After 18 percent GST, the box service plan earlier amounted to Rs 116.82 whereas now the box service plan costs Rs 141.6. After including taxes the hike amounts to around Rs 25 for Dish TV and D2H customers.

For the unversed, the box service plan offers Dish TV and D2H customers the ability to have an extended 1-year warranty on their set-top boxes subject to terms and conditions. The plan can only be availed after the expiry of the primary warranty period subject to the verification of the set-top box is in a functional state. The verification will be done by the engineers of Dish Infra.

For defective set-top boxes, the repair cost will be borne by the customers before the DTH company allows the subscriber to opt for the box service plan.
