Television programme and advertising code under review: I&B Minister

The Government had constituted a Committee on October 3, 2005 for reviewing the Programme and Advertising Code prescribed under the Cable Television Network (Regulation) Act, 1995, and rules framed thereunder, and the Guidelines for Certification of Films prescribed under the Cinematograph Act, 1952, I&B Minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi informed Rajya Sabha.
