Amid speculation that the second season of the controversial reality show' Sach Ka Saamna' is in the offing, Government today warned Star Plus to keep in mind the Indian ethos and culture while formatting a programme based on an international format, failing which it could invite stringent action.

Ministry for Information and Broadcasting has shot off a letter to Star India officials on whose channel Star Plus, the reality show was aired earlier this year, saying," the ministry in exercise of powers inter alia, under provisions of uplinking guidelines, the terms and conditions of the permission granted and the provisions of Section 20 of the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act 1995, hereby warns Star Plus channel to strictly adhere to the Programme Code prescribed under the said Act.

"And also directs the channel that, while formatting a programme based on international format, it should keep in view Indian ethos and culture as well. Strict compliance to above action should be ensured by Star Plus channel. Any further violation may entail stringent action."

The ministry had sent a show cause notice to the channel on July 22 this year, when it was airing the show, as it found its contents"vulgar, indecent and against good taste and decency".

After Star Plus had replied to the notice on July 27, 2009, a personal hearing was also granted to it on the issue on September 8, said official sources.
