Social media icons and ott
Fifteen days are given to OTTs and digital media by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (I&B) to furnish details on their consent with the new guidelines that the government released in February. The new rules for digital media have asked for a three-tier wrong reparation for addressing problems of people. These would include digital news publishers and self-regulatory bodies constituted by them.
"Establish a soft touch progressive institutional mechanism with a level playing field featuring a Code of Ethics and a three-tier grievance redressal framework for news publishers and OTT platforms on the digital media," new rules that the Centre announced.
I&B minister Prakash Javadekar said that these new rules were issued to stop fake news. The Code of Ethics will apply to online information, OTT platforms, and digital media.
Ravi Shankar Prasad, IT Minister, said that "they will have to have a grievance Redressal mechanism, a grievance officer who shall register the grievance within 24 hours and dispose of it in 15 days."
