Channels want govt to relook at security clearance decision of three yrs

News broadcasters have asked the government to reconsider its decision under which the security clearance for channels is valid for only three years. This was shared by Minister of Information and Broadcasting, Manish Tewari while replying to a question in the Lok Sabha on December 12, 2013.

Tewari said that his Ministry had received a representation from the News Broadcasters Association (NBA) in November to reconsider the decision as per which the security clearance given to a company and its directors is valid only for three years.

Earlier, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) had said that if a company, which has been given security clearance applies for a new channel, fresh clearance would be needed.

Tewari added that the broadcasters had mentioned that this limiting of validity of security clearance by the MHA to three years imposes unnecessary hardships on them. They also pointed out that this had created an anomalous situation as permissions for uplinking and downlinking of channels are issued for a period of 10 years. Broadcasters stressed that this step would slow down their business.

Meanwhile, in response to another question, Tewari said that the Press Council of India (PCI) has registered 532 complaints on charges of baseless and provocative news reports published in the print media since April 1, 2012.
