Another user with Twitter handle 10 Plus Entertainment wrote, “Dear #trai now it’s become more costly. Last year I am watching same channel in just 220/- monthly. Now it’s 456/- monthly. In which favor you are thinking. Now every network start taking minimum charge of 153/- extra. Looto Public Ku.”

Deepakarna Deb wrote, “What’s going on DTH service? I can’t understand. TRAI gives an order which seems to be Tughlaq’s Farman. TRAI should withdraw this order immediately. This order doing loss for the customers. It’s an idiotic order…….,”

At the end of the day, the new regulations of TRAI turned to be a bane instead of a boon.
