Govt. warns news channels against live coverage even as Gurdaspur anti-
NEW
DELHI:
The
Government
today
barred
the
media
from
covering
the
ongoing anti-
terrorist
operations
in
Gurdaspur
in
Punjab
and
said
coverage
will
be restricted to
periodic
briefing
by
an
officer
designated
by
the
appropriate
government
till
such
operation
concludes.
The Information and Broadcasting
Ministry made it clear that ‘no
programme shall be carried in the
cable service, which contains live
coverage of any anti-terrorist
operation by security forces.’
Coming shortly on the heels of the
Home Ministry directive about media
covering only official briefings, the
I&B Ministry said it had notified the
Cable Television Networks
(Amendment) Rules 2015 in this
regard.
The Ministry asked news and current
affairs TV channels to stop carrying
telecast of these operations without
restricting themselves to periodic
briefing by an officer designated by
the appropriate Government, though
the operations had not been
concluded.
Such telecast is in clear violation of
the Cable Television Networks
(Amendment) Rules 201 5, and is
therefore liable for action thereunder
and so these channels have been
advised to desist from further
violation of the rules with immediate
effect.

MUMBAI: The Ministry of Information
and Broadcasting (MIB) has issued an
advisory against live coverage of
anti-terrorist operations by news &
current affairs channels in wake of
the on-going anti-terrorist
operations in Gurdaspur, Punjab.
The advisory mentions that it has
been brought to the notice of the MIB
that during today’s on-going anti-
terrorist operations in Gurdaspur,
Punjab, some news & current affairs
TV channels have carried telecast of
these operations without restricting
themselves to periodic briefing by an
officer designated by the appropriate
government, though the operations
had not been concluded.
Such a telecast is in clear violation of
the Cable Television Networks
(Amendment) Rules, 2015, and is
therefore liable for action
thereunder. The advisory asks
channels to desist from further
violation of the said rules with
immediate effect.
The Cable TV Networks (Amendment)
Rules 2015 states that no programme
shall be carried in the cable service
which contains live coverage of any
anti-terrorist operation by security
forces, wherein media coverage shall
be restricted to periodic briefing by an
officer designated by the appropriate
government till such operation
concludes.
