[Allegation Of Communal Reporting By Republic TV] Delhi HC Directs Ministry of Information & Broadcasting To Decide Complaints Within 4 Weeks

The Delhi Court directed the Central Government to consider the complaint filed by Amish arabian Panday against Republic TV. Justice Navin Chawla directed Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to look into this serious matter and take decision within 4 weeks. Petitioner stated that the channel made many attempts to reframe the event of Palghar Mob lynching.

National Broadcasters Association (NBA) does not have any jurisdiction to probe Republic TV because it is not a part of that organization. The channel violated the rules prescribed under the Cable Telivision Regulations.
