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.

Book review- "Wings of Fire"

“Wings of Fire” is an autobiography of former President of India and an eminent scientist Shri A P J Abdul Kalam. It is very important for every Indian and especially for youth to read this autobiography. It is not because he is a former president and an eminent scientist, therefore every Indian should read it, however this autobiography really has good knowledge to share with us, a knowledge which is very difficult to get elsewhere. This autobiography is different in many ways as it tells us many lessons with true examples. This book tells us the story of a Muslim boy, who became the President of a Hindu dominated country by hard world and dedication. It gives us an inside look into the lives of Muslims in India and relationships between Hindu and Muslim communities in India. It tells us, how common Hindu and Muslim respect each other’s religion. “Wings of Fire” is the story of a small boy achieving his dreams despite all the odds. This real story tells us the role of family, re

Movie Review Vidya Balan Starter movie Sherni by Arvind Katoch

 Recently, I got a chance to Sherni movie on amazon prime. This movie is released on the same platform. I liked this so much that I created a video review of this movie. Sherni is a wonderful movie that puts you on the path of thinking. Today, the encounter of wildlife and humans have become very common. This problem is causing a great conflict in society. Unplanned growth is absorbing the land so fast that common people and animals have not left with any vacant land to move freely. This is causing more pressure on wild animals to venture into human territory and vice-versa. To get more on this movie and why you should watch you can watch the video review repaired by me below.  Watch my Video Review of the Movie Sherni of Vidya Balan-
