Over the past few years, there has been a spurt of the telecom growth. Even though it has been in fits and starts. Envisaged in the National Telecom Policy was the role of a regulator. However, as the action on the ground has demonstrated, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India has clearly failed in its mandated role. The Indian telecom has had strange bedfellows. Department of Telecom was the regulator as well as the service provider. It made sure that its two very ugly daughters Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) and Mahanagar Telecom Nigam Limited (MTNL) remained at the forefront of inefficiency.

TRAI was set up much later and it was envisaged to be a regulator and to safeguard the interests of the consumers. TRAI was in a bind and fix because most of the decisions that it ever took were either challenged in the courts or ignored. This has indeed limited its scope over the period of time whereby it cannot claim its mandate.

Seeing that a large number of cases were dragged to the court, the government of the day set up Telecom Disputes Appellate (TDSAT). TDSAT has however usurped the quasi-judicial powers of TRAI, which does not reflect a healthy regulatory regime.

Dear Friends, I see lots of blogs on Broadband India and India Telecom Market.

Before we can talk about the private players in the market, I would like to first define the golden word "Customer service".
Sadly most of the private players in the field think it is "Cusomer RACKING". I wonder what is the instrument of the private operators to give us such a bad service?

I can think of only the following reasons for giving such a service

1. They want to make quick money?- (don't they know that such games will not last long before the game comes to an end? All private companies hire top MBA grads from the best institutes and I think any marketing book, business book, quality policies would explain and stress upon "CUSTOMER IS THE KING and KEY TO SUCCESS", if they satisfy 5 customers they would in turn get another 35 people who would be potential buyers!!)

2. CUSTOMERS IN INDIA HAVE VERY LESS SAY - For example, I had a problem with TATA indicom billing, I spoke to every possible rut in the planet that were concerned with TATA but I could get to answer! They understand it is a problem but they don't want to work on it... instead they invited my to disconnect and I was so furious that I had to wait in a long que to file a complaint because there were so many people who wanted to do the same ( I had to wait close to 2 hours every time I wanted to speak to them) END RESULT - WHAT CAN I DO MAXIMUM but to throw the rubish phone on them though I may have to forgo 6000 bucks.
I came out of the customer center with little to say or do.
Were as in the US, the customers have lots to say and do. They can get a refund immediately they can even sue the company because because they have a good consumer court! The scare keeps them at the top
THAT IS SERVICE!!


I can talk about the pathetic customer service of SIFY, TATA INDICOM, AIRTEL, BSNL and so on. I think most of us have experienced the same things but this is just falling into the dead ears of private players!!

If TDSAT, TRAI or any governing bodies want INDIA to be a super power, TELE DENSITY to increase... It is not going to be companies spending hefty amount to market but it should be companies trying to retain customers.
COMPANIES need to remember only when they retain customers with joy will they see more and more people signing-up for the same.Customer's experience will be a key and will reduce advertis€m€nt budget.

Let me again stress that ones a customer has a bad experience you can be rest @$$ured that the customer is never going to sign-up again in is lifetime.

This message is for the governing bodies "PLEASE GIVE THE CUSTOMER A FAIR TEETH TO FIGHT FOR THE SERVICE THAT WE PAY FOR"
What do I mean teeth?
1.gives us easy and customer friendly ways to file in consumer courts
2. Customer should not be asked to come 100 times to the court. Instead they should be given the power to fight through a consortium which could be a discussion board like this.
3. FINISH THE CASE FAST (max 15days). If you don't have the people to do this, charge all customers a cess of 0.5% for this cause. I am sure everyone will be ready to part this money!
4. finally the defaulting company needs to pay a very hefty fine ( I know what you are thinking!! The private operator will p@$$ the fine on us...Mr. FM will have a way to track this...suggestion cut the final profit amount in the balance sheet and see to that the next years profit is less than the current year. This will bring tremors that would only make INDIA a place to live with better service).

This is the only way that I think off will bring down unhappy customers.

(R. N. Choubey) Principal Advisor (B&CS) Note.1-----The principal regulations were published vide notification F. No. 4-55/2007 - B&CS dated 31st August, 2007. Note.2-----The Explanatory Memorandum explains the objects and reasons of the Direct to Home Broadcasting Services (Standards of Quality of Service and Redressal of Grievances) (Amendment) Regulations, 2009. Annex EXPLANATORY MEMORANDUM Background 1. The Direct to Home Broadcasting Services (Standards of Quality of Service and Redressal of Grievances) Regulations, 2007, were issued on 31st August, 2007. These regulations were issued to lay down the standards of quality of direct to home services and to protect the interests of direct to home subscribers. At the time of issue of these regulations, only two direct to home operators apart from Doordarshan were providing direct to home services in the country. Since then, three new direct to home operators have started commercial operations and the number of direct to home subscribers has also risen to about 11 million. With the evolution of the direct to home segment and the increase in the number of direct to home subscribers, new issues relating to quality of direct to home service have arisen. In order to address these issues the Authority has decided to amend the Direct to Home Broadcasting Services (Standards of Quality of Service and Redressal of Grievances) Regulations, 2007. Consultation Process 2. Sub-clause (v) of clause (b) of sub-section (1) of Section 11 of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India Act, 1997 (hereinafter referred to as the TRAI Act, 1997), provides for the Authority to “lay down the standards of quality of service to be provided by the service providers and ensure the quality of service and conduct the periodical survey of such service provided by the service providers so as to protect interest of the consumers of telecommunication services”. Sub-section (4) of Section 11 of the TRAI Act, 1997 requires the Authority to ensure transparency while exercising its powers and discharging its functions. Accordingly, the Authority decided to go in for a consultation process before amending the Direct to Home Broadcasting Services (Standards of Quality of Service and Redressal of Grievances) Regulations, 2007. 3. The process of consultation was initiated by circulating a consultation paper on the Quality of Service issues for Cable TV Services in Non-CAS Areas and for DTH Services on 1st December, 2008 inviting inputs from the stakeholders. Responses were received from 26 stakeholders/ representatives. An open house discussion was also held on the 6th February, 2009 in Kolkata with representatives of stakeholders to further deliberate on various issues raised in the consultation paper. Issues for Consultation 4. The issues which were raised for consultation in the consultation paper are as under:- i) Whether the DTH operators should be specifically prohibited from dropping of channels from a subscription package for a subscriber for six months from the date of enrolment of that subscriber, if the channel continues to be available on their platform. ii) Within this period of six months, in case the channel ceases to be available on a particular DTH platform, then whether it would be appropriate to have a mechanism of reducing the subscription charges by an amount equal to the wholesale a-la-carte rate of that channel. Alternatively, can you suggest any other methodology for such compensation to the subscriber? Should such compensation be paid/adjusted even when one channel in a package is dropped, and it is replaced/substituted by another channel so that the total number of channels in that package is not affected? iii) Whether the subscribers should also be required to subscribe to any channel/ package for a certain minimum subscription period as in CAS areas. If yes, what should be such minimum subscription period? iv) Whether there is any justification for visiting charges for “no signal” complaint by the subscribers? If yes, should there be a ceiling on such visiting charges for complaints of “no signal”? v) Similarly, should any ceiling be placed in respect of visiting charges for repair and maintenance of CPE for DTH services? Alternatively, should DTH operators be required to offer Annual Maintenance Contracts (AMCs) to their subscribers? vi) Can you suggest some form of AMCs for DTH Service covering all aspects such as repair & maintenance charges for CPE, visiting charges, attending “no signal” complaints, etc.? vii) Whether the service providers should be required to make available toll-free numbers for recharge calls for prepaid accounts? viii) Whether the request for suspension of service for full calendar months only should be entertained? ix) Whether tariff plan or subscription package changes requested by the DTH subscriber should be accepted and implemented immediately or from the start of next billing cycle for DTH subscriber. x) Whether advance notice of minimum 30 days should be given by DTH operators to a DTH subscriber before terminating his existing tariff plan provided that no tariff plan can be terminated within the contracted period, if any, for that package or within six months of enrolment of that subscriber to that package. Analysis of the responses received during the consultation process Dropping of channels from a package 5. The DTH operators have suggested that the freedom of adding/ dropping the channels should be with the DTH operator. On the other hand the consumers have demanded that protection should be available not only for six months, but for the entire contract period of subscription package, if such period exceeds six months, so long as advance payment has been made by the subscriber. The DTH operators have expressed a view that there need not be any reduction in subscription charges in case of any channel being withdrawn from a subscription package. However, the consumers have taken a stand that in case of any channel being withdrawn from a subscription package, the subscribers should be compensated by way of reduction in subscription fee. Further, some consumers have demanded that in case a channel is substituted by another channel, the choice of subscribing to the new channel or to get a reduction in subscription fee should be with the subscriber. Minimum Subscription Period 6. The Broadcasters and the DTH operators have favoured imposition of a minimum subscription period for any channel/ package similar to the 4 month period prescribed in quality of service norms for CAS. However, the consumers are divided on the issue and while some of the consumers agree with the concept of minimum subscription period, others have opposed it. Maintenance of Customer Premises Equipment 7. The issue of visiting charges payable by the DTH subscribers for visits made by personnel of DTH operators for repair and maintenance of CPE also divided the consumers. While some consumers opposed visiting charges or wanted a ceiling on the visiting charges, others did not agree with them. It was pointed out by an individual that “…warranty does NOT include transporting charges for individuals and hardware. Therefore for customers of all categories, itemized bills must be issued detailing the breakdown of payments sought. …”. The DTH operators did not favour any kind of regulation of visiting charges. 8. Almost all the stakeholders were of the view that the DTH operators should offer Annual Maintenance Contracts for maintenance of CPE to their subscribers. Different suggestions were also received regarding the form of Annual Maintenance Contracts. One DTH operator has suggested that all DTH operators must have their own Annual Maintenance Contracts. Toll Free number for recharge calls 9. The proposal has been opposed by the DTH operators and the consumers have unanimously favoured the proposal. Only one DTH operator has suggested that all DTH operators should make provision for toll-free numbers for calls made for recharging their prepaid accounts. Suspension of service or change of plan on request of Subscribers 10. All the DTH operators have suggested that the request for suspension of service for full calendar months only should be entertained. It has been pointed out by the DTH operators that the broadcasters are paid on the basis of calendar months and accordingly, any suspension of service for part of the month results in financial burden on the DTH operator. It was also suggested by an operator that “…either it should be done from the calendar month or the operator should be allowed to charge a service fees for extending this service…”. The consumers were divided on the issue. 11. As regards timeframe for carrying out changes in tariff plan or subscription package on the request of a DTH subscriber, the DTH operators wanted to be permitted to levy administrative/ additional charges for such changes. Further, it was pointed out by some DTH operators that any upgradation is possible with immediate effect, but downgradation of a package can be done from next billing cycle only as the broadcasters have to be paid for supply of content. The consumers were divided on this issue. Some of the consumers suggested that the DTH subscribers should be billed on pro rata basis but there should not be any administrative charge. Notice period for termination of a tariff plan 12. Most of the consumers wanted a notice of minimum 30 days to be given by DTH operators to a DTH subscriber before terminating his existing tariff plan. Some of the consumers wanted a 60 days notice, while others suggested that the DTH subscriber may be warned about such a change 15 days in advance of exhaustion of credit limit. The DTH operators opposed any such notice. Rationale for making amendment to the Direct to Home Broadcasting Services (Standards of Quality of Service and Redressal of Grievances) Regulations, 2007 13. The Authority noted that a large number of complaints have been received from the Direct to Home subscribers regarding dropping of channels from subscription packages offered by DTH operators. In case of subscription to DTH services, a subscriber subscribes to the service on the basis of specific channels included in the subscription package. If any channel is taken out of a subscription package and it is replaced by another channel then the DTH subscriber may be getting the same number of channels as earlier, but will be deprived of viewing the particular channel which has been removed. In case the channel which is removed is offered to the subscriber as an add-on package then the subscriber ends up paying more for viewing that channel which was earlier included in his subscription package. This subverts the tariff protection provided to DTH subscribers by Regulation 9 of the Direct to Home Broadcasting Services (Standards of Quality of Service and Redressal of Grievances) Regulations, 2007. 14. Further, the Authority has also noted that the DTH operators are offering annual or fixed period subscription contracts also to DTH subscribers. To protect the interests of the DTH subscribers who have entered into annual or fixed period subscription contracts with the DTH operators, it is necessary to ensure that the channels offered to the subscriber at the time of entering into the subscription contract are not removed from the package during the validity of subscription contract. 15. However, on the other hand it must be recognized that the DTH operators have to tailor their packages according to the changing demands of their subscribers. Accordingly it was not considered advisable to completely prohibit the DTH operators from making changes to their subscription packages. To balance the interest of service providers and subscribers, the DTH operators have been prohibited from changing the composition of any subscription package for a minimum period of six months from the date of enrolment of the subscriber for such subscription package, if the channel continuous to be available on their DTH service platform from the broadcaster in any other subscription package. In cases where the existing subscription contract between DTH subscriber and the DTH operator is for a period longer than six months, such prohibition would apply for the complete term of the subscription contract. 16. In case any channel has to be removed from a subscription package by the DTH service provider during the contracted period of the subscription or six months whichever is later due to the channel no longer being available on the DTH service platform in any other package, then the DTH operator would be required to compensate the DTH subscriber by way of proportionate reduction in the subscription charges for a minimum period of six months from the date of enrolment of the subscriber for such subscription package or for the remaining period of subscription contract whichever is more. However, the DTH operator may replace such a channel by another channel of the same genre and language in the subscription package without reducing the subscription charges. This will enable the DTH operators to include more popular content in their offerings and package the content to suit the needs of their subscribers. However, the option to choose the modified subscription package with reduced charges or the modified subscription package with the replaced channel shall remain with direct to home subscriber. Further, it has been mandated that the DTH operators should give prior notice of fifteen days before changing the composition of any package to all the subscribers who have subscribed to that package. 17. Presently there is no restriction on the direct to home operators about offering any channels/ packages on quarterly/ annual/ any other basis. The direct to home operators have been designing their packages as per the demand of customers and terms and conditions of their interconnection agreements with the broadcasters. Accordingly, the Authority is of the view that currently there is no need to bring in any regulation requiring the direct to home subscribers to subscribe to any channel/ package for a certain minimum subscription period as in CAS areas. 18. The direct to home operators have also been mandated to offer Warranty for CPE acquired by their subscribers on outright purchase basis from them. Although offering of AMC by DTH operators is not being mandated, it is expected that some competition among the direct to home operators would ensure that the repair and maintenance services are available to the DTH subscribers. Even presently, some of the DTH operators are already offering AMCs for DTH CPE. 19. Presently, some of the direct to home operators are not charging any visiting charges for repair and maintenance of CPE while some are charging. The Authority is of the view that market forces will take care of this issue. The DTH operators have to compete with cable networks and no such charges are levied by cable operators. Further, there are five pay DTH operators in the country and therefore there is some level of competition among DTH operators also. Hence it was not found necessary to prohibit, by way of regulation, the direct to home operators from charging any visiting charges after the warranty period is over, as it was felt that competition and market forces will work on this issue to ensure that the interests of direct to home subscribers are protected. 20. The Authority has decided against mandating the direct to home operators to make available toll-free numbers for recharge calls for prepaid accounts. The main reason for this decision is that ultimately the cost of operational expenses of providing direct to home service gets passed on to the direct to home subscribers. Any additional expenditure by direct to home operators in making available toll-free numbers for recharge calls for prepaid accounts will result in increase in the subscription charges in the long run negating the benefits from the toll free number. However, it is expected that the telephone number provided for recharge calls for prepaid accounts should not have premium charges. 21. The direct to home operators have to pay the broadcasters on the basis of number of viewers for the entire calendar month. Any suspension of service for part of the month puts a direct to home operator at a loss because even though the direct to home subscriber is not required to make payment for the period of suspension, the broadcasters have to be paid for the entire calendar month. Accordingly, the direct to home operators have been permitted not to entertain, at their discretion, any request for suspension of service for part of calendar months. However, it has also been mandated that the DTH operators should entertain requests for suspension of service for a period which does not comprise part of a month and which does not exceed three calendar months. 22. The issue of change of tariff plan or subscription package on the request of a direct to home subscriber is also linked with the payments that a direct to home operator is required to make to the broadcasters. Accordingly, any downgradation of subscription package entails discontinuance of supply of certain channels to the direct to home subscriber. However, the broadcasters whose channels have been discontinued have to be paid for the entire month/ billing cycle. Therefore, such a downgradation is normally done from the next billing cycle. The Authority has noted that the upgradations are done by the direct to home operators immediately. Therefore, no regulation is being brought in regarding this aspect. 23. The issue of advance notice to a direct to home subscriber before terminating his existing tariff plan by the direct to home operator is to be seen in the context of tariff protection being made available to the direct to home subscriber. The present amendment regulations have extended the protection available to the direct to home subscriber regarding composition of a subscription package for six months from the date of enrolment or contracted period, whichever is longer. However, an advance notice will enable the direct to home subscribers to make an informed choice out of new subscription packages available once the existing package is discontinued after the period of tariff protection (six months from the date of enrolment or contracted period, as the case may be) has expired. Accordingly, a prior notice of fifteen days has been mandated for change in composition of a subscription package. :D
