NTO 2.0 implementation deadline further pushed to Feb 28, 2023

OHD will now take place on September 8, 2022

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has extended the deadline for implementing the New Tariff Order (NTO 2.0) from November 30, 2022, to February 28, 2023.

On Thursday, the regulator said, “All the distributors of television channels shall ensure that
services to the subscribers, with effect from February 28, 2023, are provided as per
the bouquets or channels opted by them.”

After receiving comments and counter comments from the stakeholders on the fresh consultation paper, the regulator was supposed to hold an open house discussion (OHD) on July 21, 2022, which did not take place.

However, the regulator in its communication said that the OHD will now take place on September 8, 2022.

TRAI said that all the broadcasters shall report to the Authority, any change in name, nature, language, MRP per month of channels, and composition and MRP of bouquets of channels as per the New Regulatory Framework 2020, by November 30, 2022, and simultaneously publish such information on their websites. The broadcasters who have already submitted their RIOs in compliance of the New Regulatory Framework 2020 may also revise their RIOs by November 30, 2022.

“Further, all DPOs shall report to the Authority, DRP of pay channels and bouquets of pay channels, and composition of bouquets of pay and FTA channels, as per the New Regulatory Framework 2020 by December 31, 2022, and simultaneously publish such information on their websites. DPOs who have already submitted their RIOs in compliance of the New Regulatory Framework 2020 may also revise their RIOs by December 31, 2022,” the regulator said.
