SC allows photos of CM, governors and ministers in government ads

Almost after a year The Supreme Court of India has lifted the ban on photos of Chief Ministers, Governors and other ministers in government ads. It can be recalled that Supreme Court had passed an order in May 2015 that only photos of PM, President and Chief Justice of India can be published in the ads.

The order didn’t go well through some of the states such as UP, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu and they urge a plea in front of the court to re-look into the matter.

The Court order came after plenty of interference and plea from ministries and other states. Today morning the court revised its orders.

Centre had made an appeal in the Supreme Court last year in October to allow the photographs of Chief Ministers, Governors, Prime Minister, President and Chief Justice of India in government ads. The matter was in the Court and witnessed few hearing over the last six months.

Two weeks ago the Modi government opposed SC’s order limiting the use of the photographs in government advertisement. The Central government feels that the position of Chief Ministers and respective ministers of various ministries should also been seen and highlighted.
