There are now only two days left in the new TRAI rule to be implemented. Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has recently issued instructions, after which the Broadcast Sector has to give its customer the option to select the channel and pay accordingly. After TRAI’s order the news was coming that the service of already subscribed channels could be interrupted.
