He further added that “If there is a need to make any changes in the rules regarding this, will not back down in that direction either. Strict action will be taken to stop obscenity and abuse,”.
Addressing the issue of rising complaints in regard to the content on OTT platforms, the Union Minister added that “On level one, the producer is supposed to solve the complaints. Almost 90 percent of complaints are cleared at stage one only. Next is the association level, where almost everything is cleared.”
“When the complaints finally reach the government, strict actions are taken. However, the complaints have only increased in the last few days,” he added.
Notably, the Delhi High court on March 7, upheld an order for registration of FIR against the TVF and its actor and also asked the government to take steps to check the language of the content of (Over The Top) OTT platforms.
