sristi Cable to get Zee signal from 29 May

NEW DELHI: The Telecom Disputes Settlement Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) has directed Zee to provide signals to the Kolkata multi-system operator (MSO) Sristi Cable Network from 29 May.

This was after Zee said it was satisfied with the Enigma system on which Sristi is running its SMS, barring two minor modifications which Sristi has agreed to carry out.

However, the SET Discovery, also a party to the case, has still raised some technical issues. Sristi Senior Counsel Prabhat Kumar said if Zee had given the green signal on all technical parameters, what more could be questioned?

The court has said that SET would have the premises of Sristi inspected and will file an affidavit about the deficiency, if any, in the system installed at the premises of the petitioner.


The SET Vs Sristi case has been listed for 22 July.

Kumar told that the order was true to all principles of natural justice and revealed that even ESPN has sent a letter to Sristi regarding sending their signals.


Neither Zee nor ESPN had been wanting to give their signals earlier.

Sristi had filed the petition with the TDSAT in Delhi asking for signals from Sony and Zee, but the latter had held that Sristi does not have the required equipment, which Sristi has denied.

Kumar said, "Zee still wants two specific but minor software changes. We have said we shall put everything in place by the time given to us by the court."
