TRAI has made some major changes to the tariff regime, but the major one is the cap on a-la-carte channels. The regulator want to maintain the transparency by reducing cap of A-la-Carte Channels to Rs 12 from Rs 19.
Cable TV / DTH operators were supposed to implement the new tariff from 1st February, 2020.
But, after announcement of amendments to the New Tariff Order (NTO 2.0), all the Broadcasters under Indian Broadcasting Foundation (IBF) approached multiple local courts to seek relief.
As per new rule implemented by TRAI, Broadcasters can not include individual channels priced over Rs 12 in their bouquets. Actually, TRAI pushes the broadcasters to reduce the prices of various popular channels from Rs 19 to Rs 12.
TRAI’s decision to reduce the price of individual channels to be included in bouquets will definitely bring down the monthly cable tv bill for Indian TV Viewers / Subscribers.
