MUMBAI: The Gujarat High Court issued a notice to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) and the centre on 1 February 2019, over a petition filed by local cable operators (LCOs) challenging the decision to fix the ratio of profit sharing between LCOs and multi-system operators (MSOs).

In 2017, TRAI issued a notification fixing the ratio of sharing of service charges collected towards cable connections at 55:45 between MSOs and LCOs. This was done by inserting clause 12(7) in the Telecommunications (broadcasting & cable) Services Interconnection (Addressable Systems) Regulations.

A bench headed by acting chief justice A S Dave has sought reply from the authorities and posted the matter for further hearing after two weeks.

The Cable Operators Association Of Gujarat filed the petition through advocate Pratik Jasani challenging the insertion of the clause, fixing the revenue sharing between MSOs and LCOs. The cable operators have urged the HC to quash the arrangement before implementation of the 2017 notification, though the government consulted other stakeholders.
