In view of the numerous complaints from viewers and women’s outfits about indecent content, the Information and Broadcasting Ministry has asked channels airing TV shows Bigg Boss and Rakhi ka Insaaf to air them only between 11 pm and 5 am, virtually bracketing them as only for adult viewing and not for universal viewing. The shows cannot also be repeated in any other time slot or shown on news programmes.
While Bigg Boss is being aired on Colors, Rakhi ka Insaaf is aired on NDTV Imagine. Both are prime time shows.
This is the first time that the Information and Broadcasting ministry has compulsorily changed time slots of popular TV shows.
