NEW DELHI: The transmission or retransmission on any platform of News Time Assam TV and DY 365 has been banned for one day from midnight 30 July for telecasting news stories about two girls and a member of the Legislative Assembly in October last year.

The Inter-Ministerial Committee of the Information and Broadcasting Ministry said that the content of the news reports violated certain provisions of the programme code prescribed under cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, 1995 and the rules framed there under.

A show cause had been issued to both channels on 6 February this year but News Time Assam TV did not reply within the stipulated time. However, the IMC gave the channel an opportunity to appear before it on 26 February, when the channel submitted a letter which denied all charges. But the representatives apologised for telecasting the story and assured they would not make such a mistake again.

DY 365 replied to the show cause notice but said the stories had been telecast to show the gross misuse of the Red Beacon on cars. It was stated that the Supreme Court on 5 August 2013 while hearing cases related to unauthorized use of sirens and beacons banned the use of Red Beacon Lights with flashers. The channel was also given an opportunity to appear before the IMC, where it apologised for the mistake in the telecasts.

The IMC examined the evidence and was of the view that the news reports telecast by News Time Assam and DY 365 appeared to violate Rule 6(1)(a), Rule 6(1)(d), Rule6(l) (i) and Rule (l) (k) of the Cable TV Networks (Regulation) Act.

The IMC also noted that the girls had been chased by the reporter and asked some denigrating questions and the anchor attributed innuendos.
