Also, Bharti Telemedia-owned Airtel Digital TV and Discovery Communication India, petitioners in the matter, too were given this respite.
The lawyer from the DTH side, Kapil Sibal persuaded the judges to ask TRAI to produce all documents on how it arrived at the decision to implement the new tariff regime. He also stated that implementing the present order will have an adverse impact on business.
The Delhi HC has asked the TRAI to file the documents and the data based on which the new regime is based. Tata Sky is unlikely to upload its RIO for now unlike Discovery, which has already published the same on its website. Discovery, however, has complied with TRAI’s tariff order and regulations under protest.
