NEW DELHI: Times Global Broadcasting Co Ltd has been restrained by the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal to implement its disconnection order against Dish TV India.

Listing the matter for 1 August, member B B Srivastava asked Times Global to file its reply within four weeks to the matter which was admitted on 22 June 2016 and also asked Dish TV to file its rejoinder if any within two weeksthereafter.

The Tribunal said any equitable arrangement about the relationship between the parties would be decided on the basis of the pleadings.

Dish TV had challenged the disconnection notice for non-payment of alleges dues of approximately Rs 8 crore on two grounds.

The first was that even after expiry of the agreements, the parties continued with the earlier arrangement under which Times Global owed more money to Dish TV for carriage than the amount it had to receive towards subscription.

Secondly, it was alleged that the RIO offered by Times Global was discriminatory.
