ಮಾಹಿತಿ ಕೃಪೆ – IBF

The BCCC is the independent self-regulatory body set up by IBF to examine content-related complaints against GECs. In a short time, BCCC has become India’s most credible self-regulatory mechanism for non-news television. The Council also articulates its views on various aspects of self-regulation and contributes to the policy making process. Independence, Neutrality, Transparency and Autonomy are BCCC’s guiding principles.

The BCCC takes immense pride in its democratic structure and independent functioning, which has clearly established self-monitoring as the best form of regulation for television. All three pillars of Indian democracy – Legislature, Executive and Judiciary – have hailed BCCC’s work. The Council has also won praise from the Civil Society and the Press.

The BCCC examines complaints about TV programmes from viewers and other sources, including the Ministry of I&B, civil society, NGOs and residents’ welfare associations. The Council usually meets once every month and ensures that TV programmes run in conformity with IBF’s Self-Regulatory Guidelines.

Broadcasting Content Complaints Council ನ ಇತಿಹಾಸ ಹಾಗೂ ಉದ್ದೇಶಗಳು ಹೀಗಿವೆ. 


ಮಾಹಿತಿ ಕೃಪೆ – IBF

Rapid increase in the number of 24-hour General Entertainment Channels (GECs), a process that began in the early 1990s, led to the burgeoning of non-news content on Indian television. Soon, the need to regulate TV content and address programme-related complaints became evident. Being the apex body of broadcasters, the Indian Broadcasting Foundation (IBF) Board of Directors took upon itself the task of framing a set of self-regulating content Guidelines and establishing an independent complaint redressal mechanism for GECs. The objective was to provide the channels certain guiding principles for programme content, usher in a redressal mechanism for viewer complaints and ensure that programming creativity flourished in a free-speech environment without ad-hoc interventions.

IBF accomplished the goal of formulating and implementing the self-regulatory Guidelines and the complaint redressal system with the establishment of Broadcasting Content Complaints Council (BCCC) in June 2011. A milestone in the history of Indian television, the initiative signifies the maturity of broadcasters to uphold freedom of speech and expression enshrined as a Fundamental Right in the Indian Constitution. The overwhelming support of IBF member channels to the BCCC mechanism has led to constant evaluation of content in line with changing viewer preferences.

With suitable modifications, the Foundation has adopted the 2008 draft version of Ministry of Information & Broadcasting Self-Regulation Guidelines for Broadcasting Sector. IBF’s ‘Self-Regulatory Content Guidelines for Non-News & Current Affairs Channels’ were framed after wide consultations with more than 40 stakeholders, including the Industry, Government and the Civil Society. The Guidelines set out the principles and practices that guide the Broadcasting Service Provider (BSP) in offering content that conform to the ‘Programme Code’ prescribed under the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, 1995 and the Rules framed thereunder.

The Guidelines encourage creativity in line with the evolving social milieu and acceptable community standards within which TV channels should operate. The most remarkable feature of the Guidelines is “self-governance”, “self-regulation” and “self-monitoring” by BCCC, which is turning out to be a model for regulators.
