The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) on Thursday extended the deadline for furnishing comments on the decriminalization of minor offences under the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, 1995.

The deadline was initially set on 24th July, just 7 days within the floating of the consultation paper in the first place. The Ministry has now extended the deadline for solicited comments from the public and stakeholders on the decriminilization of minor offences for an extended period of 3 weeks until 15th August.

The Ministry seems to have woken up from its deep slumber given an extension 3 weeks whereas in the first place it only allowed 1 week time to stakeholders to read the consultation paper and solicit their comments.

The Ministry has decided to delete the entire provision of Section 16, Section 17, and Section 18 under Chapter IV of the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, 1995, captioned as ‘OFFENCES AND PENALTIES’.
