Government has sanctioned setting up of media monitoring centre

Information and Broadcasting, and Parliamentary Affairs Minister P.R. Dasmunsi today said the government has sanctioned the setting up of an Electronic Media Monitoring Centre to oversee the contents of satellite television channels.

New Delhi, May 15 : Information and Broadcasting, and Parliamentary Affairs Minister P.R. Dasmunsi today said the government has sanctioned the setting up of an Electronic Media Monitoring Centre to oversee the contents of satellite television channels.

The Information and Broadcasting Ministry had permitted 222 private satellite TV channels to uplink from India by April 30. Six TV channels up linked from abroad have also been permitted to downlink in India, Dasmunsi said in the Lok Sabha.

In addition, 54 foreign TV channels have been provisionally permitted to downlink in India.

The proposals of 71 private satellite TV channels for permission to uplink from India are at various stages of scrutiny in accordance with the existing uplinking guidelines.

The criteria for grant of permission for uplinking private satellite TV channels are prescribed under the Guidelines for Uplinking from India which are available on the Ministry's website.

All programmes of satellite TV channels transmitted or re-transmitted through cable service are required to adhere to the provisions of the programme, advertising codes prescribed under the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, 1995 and rules framed there under.

The channels are required to keep a record of programmes downlinked for a period of 90 days and to produce the same before any agency of the government as and when required, as prescribed under the downlinking guidelines.
