Press Council to be replaced by new media body

The government is actively considering a proposal to replace the Press Council of India by a new body with representation from every segment of the media, and making it an integrated body in the era of convergence.

The information ministry is apparently of the view that because of the phenomenal growth of the electronic media and Internet, a new media council should be constituted with adequate teeth to deal with issues facing all these areas.

I&B minister Sushma Swaraj will be holding a meeting with her senior officials later this month to give the proposal a concrete shape. The present three-year term of the Press Council comes to end in August this year.

The formation of the media body will require a new legislation apart from wide ranging consultations with the Indian Broadcasters’ Foundation and other such organisations.
