By December 5th, 2014 AT 2:16 PM

India’s broadcast regulator, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s (TRAI) principal advisor N Parameswaran said that the regulator is in the process of working on the amendment to the Quality of Service (QoS) regulation. The comments have come and the authority is yet to take a final decision on the same.

Almost three months ago, the regulator had come up with its consultation paper on levying financial disincentives on multi system operators (MSOs) and local cable operators (LCOs) who are delaying the process of billing in the digital addressable system (DAS) areas of the country.

Earlier, broadcast regulator had said that it is seeking to implement financial penalties on those MSOs and LCOs who defy the law. Comments had been asked from stakeholders on the same.

“For non-compliance of regulations, Rs 100 will be levied on each MSO for each contravention. If the MSO and LCO have entered into an agreement, both of them will be penalised for faults while in the case of no deal being signed, only the MSO is liable to pay,” said a statement from TRAI

The regulator had also said that for non-compliance of issuing bills, a disincentive, not exceeding Rs 20 per subscriber, will be levied on the MSO and/or its linked cable operator and for the second time, penalty would be Rs 50.
