Can TV serials violate the law?
Recently, the widely-watched TV serials Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and Kudrat had doctors informing parents-to-be of the sex of the foetus. As the largest public service broadcasting unit, Doordarshan has a strict code for programmes and advertisements, with two preview committees to weed out ‘objectionable’ material in serials before telecast. Interestingly, they didn’t find anything objectionable with Kudrat.
There are currently no refbacks.
