Broadcasting Authority of India to be created soon

The Government of India will be creating Broadcasting Authority of India (BAI) that will regulate all the television channels in the nation. This information has been conveyed by the Union Minister of State for Information & Broadcasting (I&B) S Jagat Rakshakan to the Press Trust of India. The proposed BAI will be established on the lines of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), the body for the telecom sector of India. In December last year, the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting (I&B) had set up a task force to provide insight over the proposed formation of the BAI. The task force is expected to present its recommendations during the budget session scheduled for the end of the month. The formation of Broadcasting Authority of India was proposed as a specific body in order to look into concerns pertaining to the growing media and broadcasting sector. The body is also expected to consider issues such as spectrum, and taxation for the media and broadcasting industry.
