TDSAT asks 4 LCOs to pay Rs 17 lakh to MSM Discovery

New Delhi: Four local cable operators have been asked by the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal to pay to MSM Discovery Pvt Ltd dues amounting to Rs 1,701,933 for varying periods along with interest at the rate of 9 percent per annum from the date of filing of the petitions.

Srishti Cable TV Network Ltd has to pay an amount of Rs 7,00,514 (apart from the 9 percent interest).as it cleared substantial payments out of the total Rs 31,56,803 in course of negotiations for a fresh agreement.

Shri Radhey Cable TV Network has to pay Rs.3,07,103 as on the date of deactivation, apart from the interest of nine percent.

Sky TV Network of Madhya Pradesh has to pay Rs 5,20,298 (apart from the interest as decreed) as the deactivation of signals was effected during the terms of the agreement.  

Mee Channel Network of Andhra Pradesh has to clear Rs l,74,018 (in addition to the interest as decreed) as it had cleared some payments out of the total Rs 2,38,233.

Though all the agreements were executed on 1 April 2014, they came to end on different dates and therefore legal notices were also sent on different dates.

None of the four LCOs appeared before the tribunal, which held that “the case of the petitioner is fully supported by oral and documentary evidences that remain completely unchallenged and uncontroverted before the tribunal. There is, therefore, no reason not to accept the petitioner's claim.”
