Before I tell you anything else, let’s explain to you what TRAI has decided :
In December 2018, TRAI Released a Press Release that disturbed All DTH Providers because they knew that this new Rule is Going to cut off their profits. But, For Customers, it was a Gift. Before Discussing it, I want you to take a look at the Notification :
As you can See TRAI clearly understood that customers need to Pay Extra Money for the Channels, they Don’t even watch. That’s why it gave orders to All DTH Providers (Airtel, Tata Sky, Dish TV, Videocon, Sun Direct) to ensure that customer only pays for the Channels they watch.
TRAI told them to Set Price for Every Channel and to Display New Channels Price List to the Customers.
TRAI Did one more great thing; they Introduced “Channel Selector Application,” which made the whole process very easy.
There is another significant thing that you need to Understand. Your DTH Payment has two components :
- Network Capacity Fee (NCF)
- Price of the Selected Channels
NCF is a monthly rental charge that you need to Pay (Complusary). Network Capacity Fee also includes 100 Free to Air Channels. The maximum MRP of NCF as per TRAI is Rs. 130 (GST Extra).Then, the Next is the Price of Channels that You Selected
So, your Monthly Bill will be: NCF + Monthly Channels Price + GST (18%).
Now, If you haven’t Selected the Channels of your Choice and Created a Custom Package yet, let me help you.
