Internet media to stay outside the purview of Media Council

The Internet media would remain outside the purview of the proposed Media Council, which is to monitor content relating to print and broadcasting. The government will be looking at the technical feasibility of bringing Internet media under the purview of Media Council later.

The government had sought suggestions from representatives of print and broadcasting media on functioning, powers, composition and sourcing of funding the Media Council. The government will subsequently come up with a concept paper on the issue and table it in Parliament for discussion.

Earlier this year the government had announced its intention to empower the Press Council of India and include broadcasting and Internet media under its purview.

It also proposed to look into the feasibility of the empowered Media Council take over the content monitoring and regulation powers from the Communication Commission, as proposed in the Convergence Bill. In that case the Communication Commission would only deal with carriage-related issues.

The Bill is expected to be introduced in the next Parliamentary session and come into effect by the year-end.
