LCOs threaten to boycott TRAI OHD meet on 29 September

NEW DELHI: The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has called an Open House Discussion (OHD) on the draft amendment Registration India International regulations, the Standards of Quality Service (Digital Addressable Cable TV Systems) (Amendment) Regulations 2014.

The meeting is being held in Delhi on 29 September and local cable operators and other stakeholders have been asked to register by 26 September evening.

However, most local cable operators from different parts of the country have decided to boycott the meet, alleging that TRAI ‘management ran away’ in the last Open House Discussion.

Several organisations of LCOs from Gujarat, West Bengal and other parts of the country pointed out that many LCOs had come to Delhi on 24 September and alleged that ‘the management of TRAI does not have respect towards this religious faith’ and has given a deadline of 26 September for the next OHD despite the Navratri festival.

It was pointed out to indiantelevision.com that even the next OHD was clashing with the festive season and not enough time was given to the LCOs to be able to get bookings to come back to Delhi.

LCOs alleged that ‘there was no discussion and no LCO was allowed to share in a fair or justified way in the last OHD and it looked like some dictatorship where the authority only wants to levy amendment on the LCOs’.
