The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has notified the Cable Television Networks (Amendment) Rules, 2015, which states that no programme shall be carried in the cable service which contains live coverage of any anti-terror operations by security forces and that media coverage shall be restricted to periodic briefing by a designated officer till such operation conludeds.

 

An advisory put out says that it has been brought to MIB’s notice that Monday’s anti-terrorist operations in Gurdaspur, Punjab, had some news channels carrying telecast of these operations without retstricting themselves to periodic briefing by a designated officer.

 

This, the advisory notes, is in clear violation of the Cable Television Networks (Amendment) Rules, 2015 and is liable for action. The MIB has issued a desist-from-further-violation advisory.
