Fraudulent cable operators pull another fast one with impunity, guardian angel 'Sristi'and state government look on

By Our Correspondent

Agartala,February 22, 2019 : The fraudulent cable operator of Tripura, cheating all customers and even state government with impunity , have pulled another fast one by unilaterally stopping broadcasting almost all channels except the 'free to air' ones and Door Darshan channels from midnight last night . After 12-00 in the night suddenly most of the attractive channels including 'Times Now', 'CNN news 18', 'NDTV', 'India Today' and almost all entertainment channels including Sony network ceased coming on view. Nobody was there in the fraudulent cable operators offices to reply to queries of subscribers.

But sources close to cable network and their guardian angel 'Sristi' indicated that recent revision of cable subscription rates by Telephone Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) by lowering subscription rates has bitten the fraudsters on the wrong side as they will be called upon to charge reduce rates of subscription and show rates explicitly on screen before asking subscribers for payments.

A significant feature of the TRAI's new guideline says "To get started, subscribers need to have in place what is known as a channel base pack. This will include 100 channels and will be priced at Rs130 plus taxes. "Consumer has complete freedom to choose their desired 100 Standard Definition (SD) channels within the network capacity fee of maximum Rs.130 plus taxes. The desired channels could be in A-Ia-carte Free to Air channels or Pay channels or bouquet of pay channels or any combination thereof. The choice completely rests with the consumers," says TRAI in an information note released on January 10".

This will tell upon the illegally high revenues extorted by the avaricious cable operators and many subscribers are now planning to move the DMs in various districts and move consumer court as well as high court to rein in the unruly and avaricious cable operators and cheating game.
