INS issues a statement urging Govt of West Bengal to clear unpaid advertising bills

In a press statement made today by V. Shankaran, Secretary General, INS, the Society has advised its members to be careful about publishing any advertisements from the Government of West Bengal.

The statement said, “The Indian Newspaper Society has advised its members to exercise extreme caution in accepting advertisements from the Government of West Bengal.  The Society’s Executive Committee at its meeting today in Kolkata expressed deep concern and anguish at the non-payment of advertisement bills of selected member publications for several years.  This has caused severe financial distress to these newspapers as the media industry passes through a very difficult period.  The Society urged the Chief Minister to clear dues of its members without further delay.

The Society also expressed dismay at the reported stand of the Government to not clear dues of its predecessor dispensation and said this was a negation of constitutional principles.”
