NEW DELHI: In the five years until July 2017, the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting (MIB) had taken action against 51 TV channels for violation of the programme and advertisement code, Minister of State in MIB Rajyavardhan Rathore said in the Lok Sabha.

On four occasions, the ministry had issued an advisory to all channels, two in 2014 and two in 2017.

In 2017, only one channel, TV9 Marathi, faced the ministry’s wrath for telecast of news report showing disturbing visuals of death of a man who set himself on fire. The ministry issued an advisory dated 28 February 2017 to the channel for violation of the programme code.

The ministry also issued two advisories to all TV channels on compliance with Rule 7(10) of the Advertising Code and telecast of the Republic Day parade with sign language commentary on 26 January 2017.

In 2016, 16 TV channels were pulled up for content violation. The ministry either issued an advisory or left the channels with a warning except in NDTV India, Care World and News Time Assam’s case, where the channels were asked to stop transmission for a day.

NDTV India and Care World got a stay order from the court against the ministry’s orders.

Action was taken against 16 channels in 2015 while 17 channels were pulled up in 2014. In 2015, three channels Satlon News, Jai Hind and Al Jazeera were asked to stop transmission with period ranging from one to 30 days.

In 2014, the ministry issued an advisory to all channels on the telecast of the advertisement on ‘Zaitoon Tara Edible Oil’, which claimed that edible oil prevents cancer.
