Broadcast Bill draft to be ready by August-end
Advertisement
#1
Quote:The final draft of the proposed Broadcast Services Regulation Bill is expected to be ready by the end of the monsoon session of Parliament in August.

Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni said that the task force headed by Secretary Raghu Menon had completed its meetings with various stakeholders and members of civic society, women’s organisations and others.

She said the report was under finalisation by this task force and may take some more time as it was a large bill. A tentative report had been prepared for a final meeting of the task force, she said in an informal chat with newspersons.

She admitted that the legislation had been under discussion from the time the Prasar Bharati (Broadcasting Corporation of India) Act 1990 was promulgated in 1997 by then I&B Minister S Jaipal Reddy. It had subsequently been discussed as a Convergence Bill by the then NDA Government headed by Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
