TRAI Reduces DTH Installation and Activation charge by presenting a new mandate. Earlier, When DTH Providers charge you a total of Rs 1200 for DTH Installation and Activation. However, after this new mandate they charge you merely Rs 500, in which Rs 350 is for Installation and Rs 150 is for Activation.
Note that this charge is going to be non-refundable, which is same as earlier. Now, after this new mandate we believe DTH providers may increase their monthly charge or the charge of their equipment.
