NEW DELHI: VXL Digital has been restrained by the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal from receiving signals from Indian Cable Net Company Ltd or any other MSO.

In a petition filed by VXL against Star India, TDSAT member B B Srivastava also restrained ICNCL and other MSOs from supplying signals to the petitioner and shareholder LCOs.

TDSAT said the alleged arrangement of migration to another MSO by continuation of the use for facility of CAS and SMS on the previous MSO “appears prima-facie unusual and not in consonance with interconnect regulations”.

However, TDSAT, in its order of 14 September 2016, said VXL will be at liberty to move an application for vacation and I or modification of the restraint order.

Star India counsel Saurabh Srivastava submitted that, through an affidavit, it had been clearly admitted by VXL that nine local cable operators who are shareholders in VXL are receiving signals from ICNCL, and VXL had agreed to extend the facility of CAS and SMS for ensuring uninterrupted services to the consumers.

It was also mentioned that their shareholder LCOs would be transferring shares of VXL to ICNCL to overcome any roadblock. This arrangement had been agreed to by the petitioner company in the letter of 28 July 2016.
