#1
Chandigarh, Oct 23 (IANS) Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting Ambika Soni Friday said no more TV channels would be allowed to go on air till the formation of a regulatory body to look into contents being aired.

"Presently, there are around 500 private TV channels on air in our country. We will not give permit to more channels till we constitute a regulatory body to look into the content of TV channels," said Soni, while talking to reporters on the sidelines of an event here.

"We would allow only experienced people or groups to start a new channel. We would also make sure that new channels are financially stable to sustain for at least next three to five years," she said.

Soni was in Chandigarh to inaugurate the 11th edition of the three-day pediatric-cardiac conference at the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER).

On the issue of censoring contents of TV programmes, Soni said, "The central government is not in favour of censoring TV programmes."
