NEW DELHI: Accepting the request on behalf of 65 Rajasthan cable operators about their dues to Hathway Cable & Datacom Ltd. Jaipur, the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) has said that these payments are ad hoc in nature and without prejudice to the rights and contentions of either side and will abide by the final decision in the petition.

 

The petition had been filed by Rajasthan Cable Operators Foundation, Jaipur, on behalf of the local cable operators (LCOs).

 

Following a previous order and as an ad hoc arrangement, Hathway counsel Jayant K  Mehta gave a computation with regard to the monthly subscription fee payable for the months of August and September 2015 by each of the 65 LCOs being represented in this petition.

 

Foundation counsel G S Oberoi said the LCOs will “certainly” make payment on the basis of the computation given on behalf of Hathway. 

 

However, he submitted that the payment of the dues for the aforesaid two months may be split up into two instalments. He said half of the dues for the two months will be paid by the LCOs along with the payment for the month of December and the balance along with the payment for the month January 2016. 

 

The Tribunal listed the matter on 22 December before the Assistant Registrar for getting the pleadings completed, framing of issues and taking evidences.
