Petition on TRPs dismissed by Bombay High Court

The Bombay High Court has dismissed a petition seeking the constitution of an autonomous body by the Central government for releasing Television Rating Points (TRPs).

The public interest litigation was filed in October by P S Deodhar who was the chairman of the Electronics Commission of India during 1984-1990. The petition was primarily seeking the constitution of an autonomous body for releasing TRPs.

This was to have a common currency for the rating of television channels and programmes acceptable to the government, advertisers and marketing companies and the general public with adequate checks and balance to ensure reliability.

The petition also suggested that the body should be under the control of the government.

The writ petition was heard by a bench headed by the Chief Justice, Dr D Y Chandrachud and was rejected on the grounds that these statutory regulations should be framed through legislative and administrative policies and not by the court.

The court also observed that the allocation of resources on advertising follows areas where the advertiser believes the yield from advertising will be the maximum and do not go by programme ratings alone.
