The Telecom Disputes Settlement & Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) has adjourned the hearing on the Indian Broadcasting Foundation’s (IBF) application in commercial subscriber matter to 29 October.
The matter was earlier put up for hearing on 7 August.
The IBF had filed an application in the TDSAT against the Federation of Hotels & Restaurant Association of India (FHRAI) for asking its members not to take signals directly from broadcasters. After TRAI had issued a letter to the FHRAI asking it to advise its members not to take signals directly from broadcasters and to do so only through distribution platforms, the FHRAI issued circulars to its members asking them to go by the TRAI directive.
Consequently, the IBF filed an application in the TDSAT contending that the FHRAI’s action is in contempt of the TDSAT judgment that had set aside TRAI’s tariff order for commercial subscribers.
