NEW DELHI: The Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal
has held Star Den, MSM Discovery and Zee Turner guilty of
letting their signals be distributed illegally by a Punjab-based
leading multiple system operator (MSO) in Himachal Pradesh
without getting necessary approvals.
chairperson S B Sinha and member P K Rastogi said the three
shall also pay a sum of Rs 25,000 each to the petitioner,
the MSOs of Himachal Pradesh Solan Sat TV, Solan Communications,
and Bridge View Broadband Network.
regard to the fact that the witness of Fastway has resorted
to suppressio veri and has not answered a large number of
questions and thus taking that fact into consideration, we
are of the opinion, an exemplary cost of Rs 100,000 should
be imposed on it," the Tribunal said.
