India’s Telecom Regulatory Authority (TRAI) has issued a consultation paper on its plans for a new suite of regulations covering the broadcast and cable sector. Responses must be submitted by May 30th.

Last December TRAI created a special committee drawn from the major stakeholders including the Indian Broadcasting & Digital Foundation, the DTH Association and the All India Digital Cable Federation, to examine and comment on plans for a new tariff order.

Topics now out for comment include a possible ceiling price for a bouquet, as well as for the supply of a channel into a bouquet. Also; how best to maintain easy access to popular TV channels.

Comments are also invited on the option of discounts to consumers for their bundles.
