Minister for Information and Broadcasting Prakash Javadekar has cleared the air about the Centre mulling over to allow 100 per cent Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in news media.

Talking to NewsX’s Senior Executive Editor Priya Sahgal, Javadekar said, “I never said okay to 100 per cent FDI. We haven’t said it. Never.”

The minister asserted, “It is the industry that has to take the call. People are discussing, let them discuss. Will talk with all stakeholders.”

Currently, foreign investment is allowed only up to 26 per cent in news and current affairs media.
