While pondering upon DTH licensing regime in Pakistan, the authority expressed grave concern over the menace of illegal DTH being sold in the country and recommended immediate crackdown on it.
It was decided that a comprehensive policy would be devised with Ministry of Interior and Federal Board of Revenue to make the DTH project a success.
The authority also showed serious concern over various re-enactment programmes being aired on several news channels, showing scenes of murder, burglary, suicide etc. It also noticed the emerging trend of broadcasting images of rape victims without censorship and disclosing identity of their relatives, violating privacy of individuals and their family.
The authority further directed PEMRA to take strict action against channels airing such tickers, news, footages and images, in accordance with the law.
