Bombay HC reserves judgement on NTO 2.0 case; asks regulator not to take coercive action
The Bombay High Court has reserved its judgement on New Tariff Amendment Order (NTO 2.0) case between the broadcasters and regulator. Until then, it has ordered the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) no to take any coercive action against broadcasters for non-implementation of New Tariff Amendment Order (NTO 2.0).
This assurance would not just extend to the petitioners who approached the Bombay High Court but also to non-petitioners i.e. broadcasters, MSO, DTH and cable operators. The new tariff regime framework published in 2017 and implemented in 2019 will continue to be the applicable regulatory framework pending judgement from the High Court.
