MIB bans FTV till March 21 for showing nudity on channel

The Ministry of Information & Broadcasting has prohibited transmission/ re-transmission of FTV channel with effect from 7.00 pm on March 12, 2010 till 7.00 pm on March 21, 2010, on cable television networks and any other platform throughout the country.

The Ministry observed that FTV channel had violated Rule-6 (1) (a), (d), (k), (o) & 6(5) of Cable Television Networks Rules, 1994 and therefore, the Ministry, in exercise of the powers conferred by Sub-section (2) of Section-20 of the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, 1995, as amended from time to time, had taken this action.

It was noticed by the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting that a programme on FTV, which was telecast on September 4, 2009 at 15:37:34 hours and 19:01:48 hours, showed women with nude upper body, which was against good taste and decency. The visuals were found to be obscene, denigrating women and were not suitable for children and unrestricted public exhibition.

In the past, too, the Ministry had prohibited transmission or re-transmission of FTV from April 1, 2007 to May 30, 2007 on grounds of telecasting programmes such as ‘Midnight Hot’, wherein skimpily dressed and semi-naked models were shown. The prohibition was, however, revoked on May 25, 2007 after FTV regretted its error and assured that such an error would not be repeated in future.
