NEW DELHI: The Information and Broadcasting Ministry has asked news and current affairs channels not to show as part of news any clips from feature films that violate the Programme Code prescribed under the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) 1995.

In an advisory issued by the Ministry, it took note of the fact that certain news channels were showing film clips not suitable for unrestricted public exhibition.

It has been pointed out by the Ministry that Rule Six of the Cable Rules 1994 are clear that no programme or film scenes that are not suitable for unrestricted exhibition or have been certified by the Central Board of Film Certification as suitable for unrestricted exhibition will be shown.

Furthermore, the Programme Code also makes this amply clear, the Ministry said in the advisory issued under Section 20 of the Act.
