New Delhi: The new rules for DTH and cable operators by Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) come into effect on February 1, with January 31 being the new deadline for customers to choose the channels for which they wish to pay.

TRAI’s notice issued on December 28, revised the deadline to January 31. The earlier deadline for migration was December 29, 2018.
