PEMRA imposes complete ban on airing of Indian content from Oct 21
The ban was imposed upon receiving government response to a summary PEMRA had forwarded earlier. The government delegated complete powers to the media watchdog pertaining to the decision-making on the airing of Indian content in the country.
“Therefore, in its 120th meeting, the authority decided to withdraw one-sided concession given to India in 2006 by the then Musharraf administration,” said a press release.
The ban on Indian content will be effective from October 21st at 3 pm. The license of TV channels and FM radio stations, found guilty of violating the ban, would be revoked without any show-cause notice.”
The meeting was briefed on the action being taken against illegal Indian Direct-To-Home (DTH) services and content, and details of raids conducted across the country.
The authority members appreciated the efforts of PEMRA officials and staff and directed them to continue their drive.
