By Azlyrics

At the beginning of this year, Trai revisited its tariff order – which had come into effect in February 2019 – and reduced the maximum price a consumer has to pay for a channel from Rs 19 to Rs 12. Broadcasters described the amendment to the tariff order as “detrimental to the orderly growth of the sector”, and in contradiction to the government’s stated position on “ease of doing business”.
