Central Monitoring Service to be revamped: I&B Ministry

The Information & Broadcasting Ministry has decided to strengthen Central Monitoring Service (CMS), to make its services more effective.

Due to its limited staff, CMS, at present, is monitoring only 15 radio and seven television channels on a regular basis.

The importance of CMS can be judged from a recent incident where Pakistan Television (PTV) had a news dispatch quoting an alleged Zee News survey that a majority of Indians were against any war with Pakistan. On checking with Zee, it was found that the channel had never carried such a report or survey.

The management of Zee Telefilms Ltd, which runs the channel, later even lodged a formal complaint with the Pakistani High Commission. Set up during the World War II to monitor Nazi propaganda, CMS shifted from Shimla to Delhi in 1981.
