'Big Boss' and 'Rakhi ka Insaaf' only after 11 pm: Govt

Faced with mounting complaints from TV viewers and women outfits about objectionable contents, the Govt has ordered channels airing TV shows 'Big Boss' and 'Rakhi ka Insaaf' to broadcast them only between 11 PM and 5 AM, virtually bracketing them as only for adult viewing. Both the shows are not for universal viewing and can be aired only in the scheduled time slot, I and B Ministry officials said on Wednesday. I and B officials claimed this is the first time that the ministry has compulsorily changed time slots of popular TV shows. While 'Big Boss' is being aired on Colours, 'Rakhi ka Insaaf' is aired on Imagine.
The shows cannot also be repeated at any other time slot or shown on news programmes, they said. The Ministry also banned Telegu SS Music channel for a period of seven days for allegedly showing nudity. The decisions were taken at an inter-ministerial meeting represented at by additional secretaries from the Ministry of Home, Women and Child Development, External Affairs and Information and Broadcasting on Monday.
