Media monitoring service may shift from Prasar Bharati to the Press Information Bureau

The government is planning to shift the media monitoring service from Prasar Bharati to the Press Information Bureau (PIB). Set up in the early 1940s to monitor foreign radio stations during the World War II, the monitoring service has been a part of the Prasar Bharati in the recent years.

The move is significant in the sense that it is expected to give more teeth to the PIB, which is among the government media units recommended for closure by the Geethakrishnan report on expenditure reforms.

The monitoring cell has been in news recently for keeping a hawk's eye on the controversial FTV channel and other private channels airing liquor advertisements.
