The next date of hearing has been set on January 6 and the notification will come into effect from January 1, 2016.
The Delhi High Court had earlier sought response of TRAI on a plea challenging its tariff order making it mandatory for cellular operators to compensate subscribers for call drops from January 1.
The telecom operators had sought to quash TRAI’s October 16 rule that mandated service providers to pay subscribers Re 1 per call drop experienced on their network, subject to a cap of three a day.
