NEW DELHI: The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) is holding a meeting on 14 July to resolve any issues between broadcasters and multi system operators (MSOs) relating to interconnect agreements.

The Information and Broadcasting Ministry (I&B) has asked all broadcasters and MSOs facing such problems to bring this to the notice of TRAI by 10 July.

The TRAI representative who had attended the ninth Task Force Meeting for implementation of Digital Addressable System (DAS) in phase III areas on 7 July had given this assurance.

The MSO has been asked to indicate the name of the broadcaster with whom there are any specific issues so that the representative of that broadcaster may also be called for the meeting.

The exact time of the meeting would be conveyed by TRAI to the participants through e-mail after receiving the representation.
