Government has sought clarification from the cable operators for stopping the broadcast of Indian channels on Tuesday.
Cable operators have restricted Indian channels from 10 am today, in a symbolic protest against India’s ‘undeclared blockade’ to Nepal.
Ministry of Information and Communications asked clarification from various cable operators as to why action must not be taken against them as they have violated Article 11 of the National Broadcasting Act, 2049. The Ministry claims the cable operators violated the provision and stopped broadcasting without any prior notice.
The Ministry has given direction to furnish clarification within 24 hours and continue the broadcast.
