    Default Fixed time for adult content on Indian TV channels likely

    Fixed time for adult content on Indian TV channels likely
    Thursday, May 10th, 2007

    After banning Fashion TV and AXN for showing allegedly ‘indecent’ programmes, the Indian government appears to be having a rethink on the issue and is now considering allowing channels to beam adult content, but only in fixed time slots.

    “The government is considering fixing specific timings for TV channels to beam adult content,” Information and Broadcasting Minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi told the parliament, reports Requests had been received on the matter for fixing specific timings for such programmes, he admitted. The minister, however, added that all matters relating to programmes or advertisement telecast on TV channels, including requests for a ‘watershed’ time for the telecast of adult content, have been referred to a committee.

    The government has set up a committee for a review of the Programme and Advertising Code under the Cable Television Network (Regulation) Act and guidelines for certification of films under the Cinematography Act, he said. The recommendations of the committee have not yet been received as meetings are continuing, he said.
