Can DTH company stop prepaid long duration pack (LDP) of TV channels?

I was under the impression that TRAI has mandated that DTH companies cannot stop long duration packs (LDP) that a customer has paid for in advance. For example, annual or semi-annual packs. I even checked the TRAI website and found same information in their official documents.

My DTH company recently sent me an SMS and stopped my ongoing LDP. I complained to them, but they have written back that the auto-discontinuation of LDP, is as per TRAI policy and guidelines.

What has been others’ experience in this? Is anyone’s LDP still going on, or have they successfully complained against auto-drop of LDP? And soes anyone have an idea what is TRAI’s position on this? Because, the DTH company has in writing told me that what they have done is as per TRAI policy.

Technically u can’t get ur old LDP back.
It’s TRAI’S new regulation, all optrs have to follow them..

The max u can get is your total balance in your tata sky account that’s it..

As per TRAI they have to ask customers wish if they want to continue with existing plan till it expires for LDP. But TATA Sky automatically migrated me as well…

First they repeatedly told me that its TRAI order. But when I also emphasized repeatedly that TRAI has also ordered that LDP customers should be asked before migration they escalated the issue to their complaint desk.

I am not so hot about the outcome since I know how TATA Sky customer care works.
