The News Broadcasting Standards Authority (NBSA) headed by former Supreme Court judge R V Raveendran, has taken action against some news channels for flouting norms.
In one of the orders, the NBSA has asked NDTV 24X7 and NDTV India to show an apology over news reports related to lynching of a man in Nahan in Himachal Pradesh. Though the channels had in their reply said they had used the word "allegedly", but not convinced, the NBSA asked them to display apologies over the news reports.
NBSA has also asked ETV Bangla to display apology after it felt that its coverage of an incident in Jadavpur University flouted the norms related to impartiality and objectivity.
Additionally, these TV news channels have also been fined Rs 1 lakh each.
