NEW DELHI: A number of Indian television news channels have tied up with the government and various agencies to put together a unified platform for ensuring ethical journalism and to look at a collective solution for ridding the industry of the various problems that continue to plague it without a workable solution in sight.

S.K. Gupta (from Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh’s channel TV100) is the chairman of the All India News Broadcasters Association, while I.D. Garg (of Khabarein Abhi Tak) and Vikram  Nevar (Tazaa TV, Kolkata) are the vice chairmen.

The new organization, comprising heads and owners of small and medium news channels, held its election meeting under the interim chairmanship of Anil Gaba of Total TV.

The first committee, with a two-year tenure, was elected and put in place to take the agenda of the association further.

The other members of the new committee are:

General Secretary - Patiala based Channel 2’s Tejinder Pal Singh

Secretary - SMBC Insight’s Dr. Prakash Sharma

Treasurer – Khabarein Abhi Tak’s I.D. Garg

Member-Working Committee - Khabar Fast’s A.K. Samaa, Azad News’ MS Walia

An interim committee was formed in June 2014. The elections followed the formal process of applying to the government for the registration of the association, and getting the association formally registered by the registrar of societies.

Speaking on the Association, secretary Prakash Sharma said, “The association will work towards creating a level playing field in the country at par with the national news channels. Apart from focusing on the problems of the industry, the association will work towards ensuring clean and ethical journalism, and work towards curbing paid news and ensuring guidelines for self-regulation. The association will also work towards creating a platform for news syndication and exchange amongst member organisations, collective marketing and distribution.”

The All India News Broadcasters association will also act as a unified body working in conjunction with the government and representing the views, issues and concerns of the broadcasting industry, and play an exemplary role in finding workable solutions.
