In the South, Asianet, Eenadu TV, Sun TV and Vijay TV, while in the West, it would be Star TV, Sony TV, Zee TV, NDTV, SAB TV, MTV, Taj TV (Ten Sports) and Radio Mid-Day. In the Northern India, TV Today, Discovery, ESPN, Television 18, BBC, Sahara, Doordarshan, Turner, Hallmark, Radio Today, National Geographic Channel and Star News have been chosen.

The sub-committees would examine all political advertisements and give the approval on the merit. In order to help the deliberations of the sub-committees, IBF has also formed certain self-regulatory guidelines, the release said.
