Confusion over the TRAI's New DTH Pricing Rules

Confusion, TRAI, New, DTH ,Pricing Rules,

At the start of this month, TRAI passed new rules for DTH pricing in India and these rules will be effective from the start of next year. Already, we are seeing ads by the leading networks like Star, Zee etc to buy their channels packs. In the advertisement, they all say to contact your DTH/Cable operator to subscribe to their channel packs. The channel packs of Star and Zee are starting from Rs 49 and Rs 45 respectively, whereas there are many other channel networks whose packs are starting from as low as Rs 8 only.

I did contact my DHT operator, Tata Sky and told them about my confusion. I asked them to clarify me the process to join these channel packs and also told that this facility is still not available on their website (mytatasky.com). The person on the phone told me that they are trying to comply with TRAI order and before 29 Dec 2018, they will update their system. After that, I will be able to select the packs of my choice. Even after this reply, my confusion is still present and I don't know exactly how to deal with this issue.

At this point, it looks that channel platforms are trying to put pressure on the DTH and cable operators. Moreover, there are also reports in leading newspapers that this process is likely to increase the monthly cost of consumers who are currently paying between Rs 200 to Rs 400 per month. The new system may cost as high as Rs 800 in some cases. Though, still, we don't have a clear idea on the present system. I hope that Channel platforms and DTH operator will work together to create a win-win situation for all including the consumers and will clear this confusion soon.

Alert for E-mail users

Dear all e-mail users, I want to request you to remain alert while using our email accounts and avoid responding or accepting number of reward or money sharing schemes offered in your mailbox. In the recent times, numbers of Indians have become the victim of these frauds due to their ignorance and somewhat greed. Numbers of criminal organisations mainly settled in poor African countries are behind these frauds. Recently, RBI has also issued security alert in this matter. However, still large numbers of people are not aware about these kinds of frauds and become the victim of them. Most of victims receive mails 1) telling them that they have won a lottery with automatic email draw 2) a person want to share some fortune with you 3) a widow needs your help for getting money 4) a bank employee of foreign bank needs your assistance in money transfer and number of other new and realistic methods created on the daily basic. Target of these mails are mostly new online users who have no knowle…

How get a man to fall in love with you?

This is very common question which large numbers of women and girls ask themselves and others. However, it is very hard to find exact answer of this question because there is no single answer as every person has different likings. Though, we can define certain basic guidelines which can help a woman or girl to attract her man. To attract a man first important thing is to understand about men in general and then about that particular man. Generally, all men have same kind of likings; though, their actual taste can vary from one man to other.
First we can start with what men like most in women or girls.
1) First important point is looks when it comes to men then good looks matter lot and generally, men feel strong attraction for good looking girls and women and they want to remain around them. So if you have good looks then you have one plus point. If you do not have very good looks then don’t worry because good looks only help in initial attraction and it decreases with time if men fail…

Thoughts on Republic Day

Republic day is celebrated on 26th January every year in India. The major reason behind the celebration of 26th January as Republic Day of India is that on 26th January 1950 India became fully sovereign nation because constitute of India came into force first time on this day. Another reason behind the celebration of Republic Day is rooted in Indian national congress’s decision to celebrate this day as Republic day of India every year during the Lahore session. From 1950, Indians are observing 26 January as Republic day of India. On this day, the whole nation remains on holiday and people of India salute the sovereignty of India by hoisting Indian Flag. This day is celebrated at different levels and in all parts of India.

This day is also used to show the muscle power of armed forces and diversity of Indian culture. More or less Republic days of most of nation resemble with each other and to some extent, our Republic day celebrations also come under the same category. I remember my ch…

A new 15 year old Buddha

In Nepal a new Buddha is in making. Recently a person called Ram Bomjon from Nepal has been fasting and meditating for last six months beneath a tree. In him people are seeing a new Buddha. This incidence has happened in Bara district of Nepal. Thousands of pilgrims have starting visiting this place. There is news that Ram has not even single time broken his fast. For the last six months he has not moved, even to relieve himself. His place is not much away from the place where original Buddha had done his meditation. According to Ram he does this meditation because a snake has beaten him. He is also asking people for not saying him Buddha because he is telling that he is not having the powers like Buddha.
