Indian Government to Regulate Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video and Other OTT Platforms

  • Now, the Indian government will regulate all OTT platforms including Netflix, Disney + Hotstar, Prime Video, Zee5, Sony Live and others.
  • The all OTP platforms now under Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, so they all need particular certified for online web series.

The Indian government will begin regulating content on online streaming platforms such as Netflix, Disney + Hotstar, Prime Video, and others, as the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has jurisdiction over online content providers. This includes many more platforms than those mentioned above, including private streaming platforms.

The change comes after President Ram Nath Kovind signed a new amendment to the Government of India rules that is the Allocation of Business in 1961. This new amendment comes under the purview of the Ministry of Information and publishes the following new things that are:-

  • Digital / Online Media
  • Movies and audio-visual programs are provided by online content providers.
  • News and current affairs content on Internet platforms.

With the help of this new amendment the online streaming platforms now sit alongside cable TV, All India Radio, and Doordarshan. It is worth noting that the government was originally proposing to self-regulate Internet broadcasting services, but it is clear that these schemes did not succeed sufficiently to satisfy the ministries. Two weeks ago, Minister Prakash Javadekar had said in an interview that they called him twice to talk about a credible self-regulation method, but they didn’t come up with the suggestion.

It seems that due to a lack of proper suggestions from streaming giants, the government decided to subject them to the I&B department. How this affects the content pumped by services such as Netflix and Prime Video in the coming years.
