The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has now extended the deadline for switching to the new channel pricing and subscription tariff regime—subscribers now have till 31 March to make the switch and will ideally not face disruption of services in the meantime. 

TRAI said in a statement “the subscribers' old plan shall continue till either subscriber exercise his/her option, or he/she is migrated to the 'Best Fit Plan'.”

“In view of the larger public interest, the Authority directs all DPOs that those subscribers who do not exercise their options shall be migrated to a 'Best Fit Plan',” TRAI added.

“The Authority hereby, vide this press release, extends time up to 31st March 2019 for exercising the option by such subscribers who have not exercised option yet,” the statement said.

“Subscribers will be free to change their 'Best Fit Plan' at any date and time on or before 31st March 2019 and DPOs shall convert their 'Best Fit Plan' into the desired pack (channel/Bouquet) within 72 hours from the time choice exercised by the Subscriber,” says TRAI in the official statement. 

This latest extension comes just days after TRAI had announced that 65 million cable TV subscribers and 25 million subscribers, in total 90 million television subscribers in India, had made the switch to the new tariff plans already.
