Government to monitor OTT content

Date: 27 February 2021 Tags: Miscellaneous
  • For the first time, the government, under the ambit of the Information Technology (Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules 2021, has brought in detailed guidelines for digital content on both digital media and Over The Top (OTT) platforms.
  • The new rules lay down a three-tier grievance redressal mechanism. One will be at the level of each OTT provider. Each complaint will have to be addressed within 15 days.
  • If the complaint is not satisfactorily addressed, then the complainant can scale it up to a self-regulatory body collectively established by the OTTs.
  • This body will be headed by a retired judge of the Supreme Court, a High Court, or an independent eminent person from the field of media, broadcasting, entertainment, child rights, human rights or other relevant fields.
  • This self-regulatory body also has “censuring” powers in case of any incriminating content.
