NTO 2.0 hearing delayed; to be held in September
The Bombay High Court will hear the case related to the New Tariff Amendment Order (NTO 2.0) in the first week of September. The court had previously scheduled the hearing on August 24 two weeks after the last hearing on August 12.
Media reports indicate that the petitioners may submit further documents by August 31. The court order mandates that the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) may not use coercive action against broadcasters for not adhering to NTO 2.0 guidelines until it gives its final verdict. The case pertains to broadcasters challenging TRAI's authority to implement NTO 2.0.
