Self-regulation guidelines issued for broadcasting sector

By Manoj K Singh and Monica Das,Singh & Associates, Advocates and Solicitors

As part of a scheme to regulate broadcasting content for the public domain, the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting has issued a set of self-regulation guidelines for the broadcasting sector.

The scheme is intended to ensure conformity with acceptable contemporary community standards and to protect vulnerable sections of society from harmful and undesirable content on television.


The guidelines consist of a two-level self-regulatory mechanism. The first tier deals with self-regulation at the broadcasting service provider (BSP) level and the second tier, with self-regulation at the industry level.
