Government proposes 100% foreign investment in advertising, film sector

The government has proposed to permit 100 per cent foreign investment in advertising and film sector, 100 per cent foreign equity for uplinking hubs/stations, cable networks and FM stations and 100 per FDI for scientific and academic journals. However, the status quo—no FDI—would remain in the broadcasting and print media.
