TRAI press release

Tariff Order Second Amendment


-‌TRAI mandates a maximum NCF of Rs.130

(excluding taxes)

for 200 channels

-‌Maximum 40 percent NCF will be applicable for second TV connection

-‌The total value of paid a-la-carte channels in a bouquet should not be more than 1.5 times the price of a bouquet in which such channels are included.

-‌The a-la-carte price of each paid channel in a bouquet should not be more than 3 times the average price of a paid channel in any bouquet that offers similar channels

-‌TRAI has mandated that only channels priced above Rs. 12 will be permitted in a bouquet offered by broadcasters. The regulatory body has also reduced the maximum NCF charge to Rs. 130 (excluding taxes) for 200 channels. Moreover, no DPO will charge more than Rs. 160 per month for providing access to channels on their platform.

-‌Broadcasters have to publish the revised pricing of a-la-carte channels and bundles on their website before January 15. DPOs, on the other hand, will have to publish the tweaked pricing by January 30. As for consumers, they will start receiving the benefit of the amended cable and broadcasting services rules starting March 1 when they go into effect.

Max Total NCF would be 160 with new mandate.

With NCF cap and new bouquet rule, prices would mostly reduce. But you may not find earlier era pricing rate.
