“And, therefore, the Ministry felt that certain issues require further consideration by the Authority and may give fresh recommendations on the subject keeping in view the gradual developments/expansion in the media and entertainment sector,” the regulator said.
TRAI said that keeping this in mind, a consultation paper has been issued on issues related to market structure, competition in cable TV services.
