I&B issues notice to NDTV imagine on show

The Information and Broadcasting Ministry on Tuesday issued notice to NDTV Imagine asking why its reality show 'Pati Patni Aur Woh' should not be stopped. Ministry sources told indiantelevision.com that the show cause notice has been issued under the clause (a), (l) and (o) of Section 6 (1) of the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act 1995 and the channel has been asked to respond within 15 days.

Meanwhile, the Delhi High Court today declined to stay the screening of the show, giving the channel a breather for now. The channel had contested NCPCR (National Commission for Protection of Child Rights) notice and Justise Sanjeev Khanna, after hearing counsel for the channel, said that there was nothing on record to warrant the stoppage of the programme. Earlier, the counsel for the channel which had filed the petition said that the NCPCR did not have any statutory authority to demand stoppage of the programme.

The NCPCR, which is an autonomous body under the Women and Child Development Ministry, had earlier asked the channel to stop the series, following representations by NGOs to the Women and Child Welfare Ministry about the use of babies in the reality show. The NCPCR had also sent a note to the I&B Ministry to take action against the channel for the show in which five celebrity couples take care of other people's babies.
