General News 25 pay news channels aired more than 12 min of ads in Mar–June
MUMBAI: The number of pay news channels not complying with the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s (TRAI) 12-minute ad cap rule fell to 25 for the period 28 March–26 June.

In the period from 28 December to 27 March, 30 pay news channels had failed to comply with the 12-minute ad cap rule.

The information is based on the data submitted by the broadcasters for peak hours (7 pm–10 pm).

As per information available with TRAI, the other pay news channels were carrying less than 12 minutes of average duration of hourly advertisements (commercial & self-promotional) during peak hours.

Out of the 25, there were eight national news channels in English and Hindi. The rest were regional news channels.

Among the national news channels, Zee News (Hindi) had aired the maximum ads at 19.34 minutes per clock hour, while Headlines Today (English news channel now named India Today TV) was the lowest at 13.49 minutes per hour.
