The Minister of Information and Broadcasting Shri Anurag Singh Thakur today in a statement laid in the Lok Sabha said that the Ministry had taken action of prohibiting transmission of varying time periods in respect of 15 TV channels for various violations under the Uplinking/Downlinking Guidelines and of the Programme Code since 2019.

The statement came in response to a Starred Question in the Lok Sabha on ‘Security Clearance of TV Channels’. The Ministry noted that the grant of permission to a satellite TV channel under the Uplinking and Downlinking Guideline was subject to security clearance by the Ministry of Home Affairs as per the procedure laid down by it.

He further added that the Government follows the due process of law and the laid down procedure before taking a decision to suspend or prohibit a channel. The grievances of the channel relating to Uplinking and Downlinking Guidelines are addressed by the Ministry.

The Ministry had recently cancelled the permission of TV news channel ‘Media One‘. The matter is currently sub-judice before the Supreme Court.
