The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) has extended the deadline for the submission of consumer application forms (CAFs) on behalf of cable television subscribers by 15 days to July 10th after a meeting with cable companies, avoiding the disconnection of their services.
Multi -system operators (MSOs), or large cable network operators, had been required to file the forms containing details of customers and their choice of channels with the regulator by June 25th.
“We have been given a final extension of 15 days,” said S.N. Sharma, chief executive, DEN Networks Ltd, a cable distribution firm. “The meeting ended on a positive note. The data collected so far was tabled in the meeting. There has been huge progress made over the last 10-15 days and forms are still flowing in. We are confident to finish on time.”
