India biz tries self-reg

World Brief

The Indian broadcast industry is setting up the India Broadcasting Standards Council in a bid to self-regulate TV content and prevent government intervention.

Under its new code, TV channels will restrict adult programming until after midnight and issue content warnings of unsuitability for certain age groups before a program.

The new org, an offshoot of the Indian Broadcasting Foundation, will be up and running in March.

Last year, the government decided to exert greater control over content and censorship on TV.

Meanwhile, minister of information and broadcasting Ravi Shankar Prasad announced in New Delhi Monday that he intends to form a body to monitor the live coverage of news on TV.
