The government yesterday asked seven private television channels to immediately stop broadcasting for their alleged faulty inception.An official order said the TV channels were airing their programme without permission and no objection certificate from the Ministry of Information.

The channels are STV US, Channel S, Rupashi Bangla, Falguni Music, TV-5, Bijoy TV and My TV.

Operation of any television channel comes under the broadcasting policy laid down in the Rules of Business 1996, the order said.

As per schedule-1 of the Rules of Business 1996, the policy is under the authority of the Ministry of Information.

“So, it is compulsory to take permission from the Ministry of Information before up-linking any local TV channel or down-linking any foreign one in case of starting its broadcast,” the order added.
