News Broadcasters Association criticizes ban on NDTV India

The News Broadcasters Association (NBA) has reacted to the one-day ban on NDTV India. In a statement the NBA said that it is surprising to note that NDTV INDIA has been singled out by the government, when the rest of the media also did cover the terror attack and all such reports were available in public domain.

It must be mentioned that the ministry has directed NDTV India to go off air for 24 hours from the midnight of November 8 for allegedly breaching broadcast norms while covering the Pathankot terror attack.

NBA further stated that the government should have seen it from the prism of freedom of the media, which is guaranteed in the constitution and not gone strictly by the regulations under the Cable Act.

It would have been appropriate, if the ministry of information and broadcasting had referred the alleged violations of NDTV India to the News Broadcasting Standards Authority (NBSA), the independent self regulatory body of the NBA, the statement said.
