The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) submitted before the Bombay High Court on Wednesday that its New Tariff Order (NTO) putting price ceiling was to discourage anti-consumer practice by television broadcasters and distributors.

A Division Bench of Justices S C Dharmadhikari and R I Chagla has been hearing pleas filed by Television Broadcasters challenging the Tariff Order.

Last week, the Court refused to grant immediate relief to television broadcasters against NTO, which had directed the television broadcasters to unveil their revised prices by January 15 and had asked the TRAI to file an affidavit within a week's time.
