The government urged all stakeholders concerned to implement the clean feed (operation of foreign TV channels without advertisement) as per the Advertisement (Regulation) Act, 2076 and Regulation, 2077 from today.
The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology reminded that government had already formed the advertisement board for the implementation of the law.
All concerned stakeholders are therefore urged to implement the Act in letter and spirit, otherwise the Ministry would take punitive measures.
The Act has banned the Nepali media to use foreign advertisement with dubbing.
Similarly, the associations that did contract with foreign channel for the broadcast with downlink were provided a year’s time ensure clean feed.
