Cola And Junk Food Advertisements Banned by Government on Cartoon Channels
 
(New Delhi, feb 09, 2018):In a major decision, the government on Thursday banned cola and junk food advertisements on cartoon channels. More details on the development have not been revealed yet.

In December 2017, the government had strictly asked TV channels not to air ads selling and promoting condoms calling them “indecent especially for children”. The government further reasoned that such ads can create “unhealthy practices” among them.

The advisory from the ministry said, “It has been brought to the notice of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting that some channels carry advertisements of condoms repeatedly which are alleged to be indecent especially for children.”

Invoking the Cable Television Networks Rules, 1994, the advisory banned “advertisement which endangers the safety of children or create in them any interest in unhealthy practices or shows them begging or in an undignified or indecent manner.”

“In view of the above, all TV channels are hereby advised not to telecast the advertisements of condoms which are for a particular age group and could be indecent/inappropriate for viewing by children. Indecent, vulgar, suggestive, repulsive or offensive themes or treatment shall be avoided in all advertisements,” the advisory added.
