CCI to police Net and electronic media

The Group of Ministers, which met yesterday to finalise the Communication Convergence Bill, 2001, has okayed the setting up of a special Content Bureau under the Communications Commission of India (CII) to police the Net and the electronic media.

The Content Bureau will have powers to check the proliferation of pornography, hate mail and other objectionable material. The CII have been vested with power to intercept and monitor press messages, data or information intended for publication in India.

Not just journalists, even service providers who fail to assist in the interception of such content could be slapped with a seven-year prison term.

The final touches to the Bill will be given on Saturday by a group of officials from various ministries.
