New Delhi, 23 April 2022

As per news report of The Indian Express, Under the provisions laid down in the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, 1995, the I&B ministry warned that the Central government may regulate or prohibit the transmission of a channel or programme if it “considers it necessary”. The ministry, in its advisory, said that certain channels have been covering events and incidents in a manner “that appears to be unauthentic, misleading, sensational and using socially unacceptable language and remarks, offending good taste and decency”. In particular, the ministry flagged the coverage of the Russia-Ukraine conflict and the communal clashes that broke out in Delhi’s Jahangirpuri on Hanuman Jayanti.
