WEB DESK: After the banning of the Pakistani artistes in India, the reaction from Pakistan was taken as well by banning Indian channels and content on television channels. Now according to PEMRA, n new condition has been presented, saying that the Indian content will be played on Pakistani channels on the condition of reciprocation.
The body unanimously decided that Pemra will only allow airtime to Indian content if India allows airtime to Pakistani content.
“Around three million Indian DTH decoders are being sold in the country. We not only want this sale stopped but will also ask the relevant agencies to trace the money trail to determine the mode of payments made to Indian dealers selling these decoders to Pakistanis,” Pemra chairman Absar Alam had said.
It further said that from October 15, the body will take action against airing of “all unauthorized content and TV channels” in the country.
Last month, Pemra said it would launch a crackdown on illegal Indian DTH and airing of excessive foreign content by TV channels and cable operators.
