TDSAT directs Digicable to pay Rs 10 mn to IndiaCast UTV by 15 August

MUMBAI: The Telecom Disputes
Settlement and Appellate Tribunal
(TDSAT) has directed multi-system
operator (MSO) Digicable Network
India to pay Rs 1 crore (Rs 10 million)
to IndiaCast UTV Media Distribution by
15 August in an interim arrangement.
In case the payment is not made by 15
August, it will be open to IndiaCast to
discontinue the supply of its signals to
the MSO.
IndiaCast UTV counsel Kunal Tandon
submitted that though the MSO is
continuously receiving the signals, it
has not made any payment since 31
March 2015. According to Tandon, the
MSO owes Rs 2.44 crore (Rs 24.4
million) to the content distributor.
Digicable counsel JK Mehta submitted
that if the amount of carriage fee
payable to the MSO is taken into
account, the amount of dues will be
much lower.
The tribunal also made it clear that
the payment is purely an interim
arrangement and is without prejudice
to the rights and contentions of the
parties and shall abide by the final
order passed in this case.
Meanwhile, Broadcast Engineering
Consultants India Ltd. (BECIL)
informed the tribunal that the audit
of Digicable’s system is under process
and the report is likely to be
submitted by 20 August.
The matter has been put up under the
same heading on 24 August.
