No permission to TV channels without security clearance, says government

The Ministry of Information and Broadcast (MIB) stated today that the security clearance is a prerequisite for the granting of permission to TV channels. It further added that action is taken towards cancellation of permissions in certain cases where it is denied or withdrawn said media reports. 

The Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting, Rajyavardhan Rathore said in a written reply to a member’s question in parliament that no private TV channel has been permitted to operate without first obtaining the security clearance.

Rathore said that in cases where security clearance is denied or withdrawn action is taken towards cancellation of permissions under the guidelines.

These statements come at a time when the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has denied security clearance to Sun TV Network for its 33 TV channels. While the MIB initially had asked for the MHA to review its decision, these statements by the MIB seem to indicate that the stance has changed regarding providing license to the TV network.
