SC lays down guidelines for publicly funded govt advertising

The Supreme Court in its order on April 23, 2014 (Common Cause Vs Union of India, Civil Writ Petition No.197 of 20M) has delivered a judgement saying that there is a need to distinguish between the advertisements that are part of the Government messaging and daily business, and advertisements that are politically motivated, designed to patronise media organisations and get favourable media coverage.

The court has decided to lay down substantive guidelines until the legislature enacts a law in this regard and has appointed a three-member Committee to suggest guidelines for public advertisements within the next three months.

The Committee held its first meeting on May 5, 2014 and has decided that the views of various stakeholders be obtained within four weeks.
