ISLAMABAD – Electronic media regulator PEMRA Thursday served a show-cause notice to Urdu 1 Television for the fifth time after the channel again aired Indian dramas.
A PEMRA release said this violated the terms and conditions of the Landing Rights Permission and October 19, 2016 directive of the authority that banned airing of Indian content on private television channels.
PEMRA earlier issued notices to Urdu 1 on July 3, 6, 7, and 10 for the same violations.
The Sindh High Court granted stay to Urdu 1 on two show-cause notices.
The release said during routine monitoring PEMRA noticed the channel aired four Indian dramas on July 12 - Saath Nibhana Saathia, Ye Hain Mohabatain, Ye Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai and Ishq Baaz.
The channel is required to respond to the notice on or before July 21. The organization’s CEO has also been asked to appear for a personal hearing on July 21.
