Arnab submitted before TDSAT that in spite of a subsisting agreement and Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s (TRAI) relevant directions permitting its channel on the landing LCN till 31st May, its channel was arbitrarily displaced and on occasions was replaced with another channel on the landing LCN. This, he said, is contrary to the order of TRAI dated 3th December 2018.
Skynet’s counsel submitted that there was some disturbance to the placement of petitioner’s channel due to technical reasons but the MSO is obliged to continue the broadcaster’s channel on the landing LCN till law permits or till the agreement subsists.
As prayed, the TDSAT offered 14 days to the MSO to file a short reply to support the submission. The matter has been posted under the same head on 20th May.
