India’s Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) is in talks with stakeholders ahead of drawing up a National Broadcasting Policy.

Indian flag 5 March 2018Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar told the Lok Sabha that there was no deadline for finalising the policy.

“In order to create an enabling environment for broadcasting and ensuring transparency, non-discrimination, consumer protection and orderly growth of the sector, the deliberations/consultations on a National Broadcasting Policy are being held with various stakeholders,” said Javadekar.

“The formulation of such a policy has multi-dimensional implications and it needs to be firmed up after due process. Therefore, no time frame can be indicated for the finalisation of the policy.”

This follows the announcement in March by Information and Broadcasting secretary Amit Khare that the MIB is working with Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) on a National Broadcast Policy.

A policy paper for India’s film industry is also set to provide a strategy outline for the industry until 2025, Khare ha said.
