Broadcasting Content Complaints Council (BCCC), the content section of Indian Broadcasting Foundation (IBF), is all set to issue an advisory to broadcasters over two serious issues. Both the advisories will come under the Parliament Act of People with Disabilities and Protection of National Honour Act.

The board members are meeting on March 27 to decide on giving a go ahead to the advisories that have been drafted.

The board is headed by Justice (retired) Mukul Mudgal. Ashish Sinha, Secretary General, BCCC informed, “We are getting lots of complaints regarding portrayal of people with disabilities. The second advisory is related to the protection of national honour, which includes the National Anthem, Emblem, Flag and map.”
