TRAI Proposes Rs 130 Monthly Rental For 100 TV Channels Per Set Top Box
Telecom industry is growing in India day by day; because of that uniform tariff structure for accessing TV channels via set top box, across India is also decreasing. There is a very huge competition in the middle of different companies. Every company want to be on top so to achieve this every one trying to offer more and excellent services in less cost.
Because of such mind TRAI Proposes Rs 130 Monthly Rental for 100 TV Channels per Set Top Box. 130 Rs does not include the taxes.
After launching this plan for its customer TRAI expect to get more customers within next few months. TRAI Ask suggestion for this plan till October 24

|Number of Channels can be fixed under the basic plan set by TRAI||100 Basic free channels along with 20 other SD channels with charge of Rs.20 (Without tax)|
|Reason behind the proposal||To meet orderly growth of DTH sector|
|The Proposal would be effective from||01April2017|
Some major feature of this plan is as follow:
- Distributor has to show100 free to air TV SD channels in Just RS 130, per set top box. It means if you have 2 setup boxes in a house you have to pay 260 to see 100 TV channel. Central Govt. will give a list of all compulsory TV channels which would be seeing to the customer under this bouquet of channels.
- If anyone wants to see additional channel then he has to pay Rs 20 per channel per setup box besides these basic 100 free to air channels. This accounts for extra bandwidth cost by distributors of TV channels
- The premium channel will not be part of this scheme. For paid channel customer have to pay additional cost as per their requirement
- There will be no hidden charges taken from public
The suggestion has been made to encourage transparency, non discrimination and to guard consumer interests for an orderly growth of this sector.
This plan is launch to make available more and more TV channel in the middle of general public. A require was felt to launch a tariff structure that allow the customers with the liberty to select from an array of gorgeous and reasonably priced and bundled TV broadcasting services as per their partiality and paying ability. Also TRAI assure that in Rs 130 the entire channel will be clear and there will no signal problem to customer.
No doubt this new traffic scheme is good for general public and now everyone can take pleasure of large number of TV channel
