I&B Ministry issues advisory to TV channels over representation of children in reality shows

Newdelhi:18/6/19:The Information and Broadcasting Ministry has issued an advisory to all private satellite TV channels for appropriate representation of children in dance-based reality shows. In its advisory, the Ministry said, it has noticed that several dance-based shows portray young children performing dance moves originally done by adults in movies and other popular modes of entertainment.

These moves are often suggestive and age-inappropriate. It said such acts may also have a distressing impact on children, impacting them at a young and impressionable age. The Ministry said all private satellite TV Channels are expected to abide by the provisions contained in Programme and Advertising Codes prescribed under the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act and rules framed.

As per the rules, no programme should be carried on TV which denigrates children, and further that programmes meant for children should not contain any bad language or explicit scenes of violence.

The Ministry has accordingly issued an advisory to all private satellite TV channels to avoid showing children in an indecent, suggestive and inappropriate manner in dance reality shows or other such programmes. The channels have been further advised to exercise maximum restraint, sensitivity and caution while showing such reality shows and programmes.
