Power to administer new digital media rules not with states, UTs: Centre

Mar 03, 2021 20:33 IST | By Editorji News Desk

The Centre has told all states and union territories that the power to administer the new rules on digital media publications has not been delegated to them. The clarification comes a day after the Union government overturned a Manipur district magistrate's order issued under the recently implemented guidelines. The provisions under the new rules relate to the code of ethics for digital news publishers, setting up of a grievance redressal system and the requirement of disclosure of information to Centre, the ministry said. However, it clarified that these rules have to be administered only by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting under the government of India.
