Govt studying the proposal to create a media council

Information and broadcasting ministry is studying a proposal to create a media council which will subsume the present Press Council of India within itself and look after the content regulation in print, electronic and the Internet. If this happens, the proposed Communications Council of India, will have to shed envisaged responsibilities of content regulation.

Information and broadcasting ministry is planning to approach the consultative committee attached to the ministry and the head of the Press Council of India (PCI) to initiate talks on the issue.

Sushma Swaraj said, “We have been receiving many complaints on the electronic medium and as there is no single forum available for citizens to register complaints for a solution (to what appears in various media), there was a need for a single body. Media council will take care of the content on Internet, electronic and print media and will do away with confusion and time wastage.

Dwelling on the KU-band DTH television service, Swaraj said that after the posting of the guidelines on the website of the I&B ministry all doubts have been removed regarding any clause.
