Repeal Television Networks (Regulation) Act 1995

Television Networks (Regulation) Act 1995 must be repealed. The Act makes it an offence to air `A’ certified films. The implications of the Act are felt now. The Act is oppressive and reminds of Taliban regime.

Since the end of August 2006 there is no telecast of HBO and Star Movies in Bombay and suburbs and decoders of these channels were seized by Bombay Police. There was not much to watch in those channels as they cut scenes. Sometimes the film did not make sense due to editing. Gia on HBO and Unfaithful on Star Movies are examples.

Adult films without cuts, darkening, morphing or alteration must be allowed on free to air channels between 11.00 p.m. to 6.00 a.m. and on pay channels at any time.

Those who do not like adult films are free not to watch them.
