Broadcasters withdraw their cases challenging NTO in Supreme Court

The court allows the withdrawal keeping the question of law of the broadcasters challenge open, thereby, allowing the broadcasting industry the ability to re-agitate the legal challenge at future date

Indian Broadcasting and Digital Foundation (IBDF) and other broadcasters on Tuesday moved an application before the Supreme Court seeking its permission to withdraw the pending legal challenge to the regulatory framework for the broadcasting sector including the contentious NTO 2.0 regime.

The application was premised on imminent consultation by the regulator to address the concerns of the industry.

The court allows the withdrawal keeping the question of law of the broadcasters challenge open, thereby, allowing the broadcasting industry the ability to re-agitate the legal challenge at future date, if TRAI fails to address their concerns raised in the petition.

The application was premised on imminent consultation by the regulator to address the concerns of the industry. As sought by the IBDF, the Court was pleased to allow withdraw the pending challenge.

Earlier today, the TRAI Chairman PD Vaghela told BestMediaInfo.com that the regulator will reinitiate the consultation process once the broadcasters withdraw their cases.

The regulator has asked the broadcasters to withdraw the case in NTO 2.0 matter from Supreme Court and resolve the issues by way of dialogue.
