New Delhi: The demand and importance of digital media are increasing day by day The government is also feeling the need to monitor them. From now on, any digital content provider will be under the control of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. Such guidelines have been issued.
The central government has issued these new guidelines to bring digital platforms under control. As a result, multiple OTT platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, ZEE5, Sony Live etc will no longer be able to operate as independently as before. In the past, the Center has told the Supreme Court in a lawsuit that digital media should be rushed before TV or electronic media can be brought under control.
In a country where print media is monitored by the Press Council of India and news channels by the News Broadcasters Association. Why not have control over online news or digital media? This thinking has been going on for a long time This time new guidelines have been issued by the central government in this regard Streaming platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hotstar will no longer be able to run their operations without restraint.
In one case, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting told the Supreme Court that there was a need to crack down on digital media. Because online media platforms have greatly benefited filmmakers and other artists. They don’t have to worry about the scrutiny of the CENSOR board. That is why this time various online platforms including news portals were brought under the control of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.
