MIB advises broadcasters to display info about local TV shows in Indian languages also
MUMBAI: The ministry of information & broadcasting (MIB) has issued an advisory to all satellite TV channels on display of castings/credits/titles of Hindi and regional language TV serials.
With a view to enhancing outreach and benefit TV viewers of the country, the ministry has advised all private satellite TV channels to consider displaying the castings/credits/titles of Hindi and regional languages TV serials in the respective languages also.
The ministry noted that several Hindi and regional language TV channels display the castings/credits/titles of Hindi and regional language TV serials only in English. This practice, it stated, tends to deprive people versed with Hindi and Regional languages of the valuable information about the casting of TV serials/programmes.
