New Delhi: Industry regulator, TRAI’s efforts to obtain stay order against the TDSAT’s ruling on The landing page issue has failed to impress the Supreme Court as the court has refused to offer interim stay on the order.
The Court has issued notices to all the parties involved in the case and posted the next hearing to 12th September 2019.
Following the outrage from the broadcast fraternity, TRAI has formally moved the Supreme Court against the order on Thursday. A Bench headed by HMJ Arun Mishra heard the appeal.
Making it legal for television channels to place their ads on the landing page of an MSO or DTH operator, TDSAT ruled against TRAI’s directions on landing page stating that the regulator TRAI doesn’t have the powers under to issue such a direction.
The order from TRAI restricted broadcasters and distributors of TV channels from placing any registered TV channel ad, whose rating is being measured by BARC on the landing page.
