Breaking News :  TDSAT directs Siti Cable and Bhopal LCOs to appear for mediation on 7 Sep
MUMBAI: The Telecom Disputes
Settlement & Appellate Tribunal
(TDSAT) has directed multi-system
operator (MSO) Siti Cable Network
and Bhopal Cable Operator Association
(BCOA) to resolve their disputes
through the process of mediation.
Both sides have been directed to
appear before the Mediation Centre
on 7 September.
As an interim arrangement, the
tribunal has also directed the MSO not
to disconnect the supply of signals to
those BCOA cable operators who have
made up-to-date payments as per the
invoices issued by the MSO and
continue to make payment at the rate
at which invoices of June 2015 was
The tribunal gave this direction
following a categorical statement
made by BCOA counsel Nittin Bhatia
that the cable operators had made
payments as per the invoices issued by
the MSO and that they would continue
to make payments to the MSO at the
rate at which the invoice dated 30
June 2015 was issued.
The tribunal also said that whether
any cable operator owed dues to the
MSO would be determined based on the
reconciliation of accounts and, if any
dues were found against any of the
cable operators, he would have to
clear it within two weeks from the
ascertainment of the said amount.
Bhatia stated that though BCOA
represents 119 cable operators
operating in Bhopal, it had been able
to enclose authorisation signed by
only 67 cable operators. He stated
that he would file authorisation by
the remaining 52 operators within a
week from Monday.
The cable operators being represented
in this petition have been taking their
feed from Siti Cable Network. Their
primary grievance is that the MSO is
unilaterally and steadily increasing
the monthly subscription fees payable
by them.
According to Siti Cable counsel
Tejveer Singh Bhatia, the cable
operators paid the monthly
subscription at the rate of Rs 30 per
STB up to March 2013 and thereafter
at Rs 60 per STB, but now the invoices
being raised by the respondent are at
Rs 83.11 (excluding taxes) for the
package of channels supplied by it.
While maintaining that he did not have
full instructions in the matter, Bhatia
said that the MSO had huge dues
against a number of cable operators
being represented by the petitioner.
