ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) Saturday reminded all private television channels to restrict to airing only 10 percent Indian/foreign content daily.
The authority said that under its laws and license regulations, signed by all licensees, the channels are required not to go beyond the specified limit. The 10 percent daily limit allows for 4 percent of English content and 6 percent programming of Indian or other foreign-language content.
PEMRA warned that beyond the deadline of October 15, violators could face a fine of up to Rs1 million (single violation) and suspension or cancellation of license.
