FTV banned in India for 9 days for topless show

I&B ministry slaps 10-day ban on FTV

The central government Thursday banned Fashion TV for nine days for showing topless women, which offended "good taste and decency".

The information and broadcasting ministry said it was prohibiting transmission of the FTV Channel from 7 p.m. on March 12 to the same time March 21 "through cable television networks and any other platforms throughout the country".

According to a statement, a programme on FTV channel telecast Sep 4, 2009, showed "women with nude upper body which was offending against good taste and decency."

"The visuals were found to be obscene, denigrating women and were not suitable for children and unrestricted public exhibition," the statement said.

The ministry said that the channel had violated the Cable Television Networks Rules, 1994.

This is the not the first time that the government has taken such a decision against the channel.

The ministry had prohibited its transmission from April 1 to May 30, 2007 on grounds of "telecasting programmes such as 'Midnight Hot' wherein skimpily dressed and semi-naked models were shown".

The prohibition was revoked May 25, 2007 after India channel regretted its error and assured that such a thing will not be repeated in future, the statement said.

F TV is a reputed fashion channel but it is sad to see that that they are repeating the same mistake.After an apology in 2007 and even after launching a India specific channel FTV cannot resist to show what it is famous for in India.The govt should have fined FTV and could have increase the Ban time to a month.I did a bit of research ( and it can be clearly seen how these foreign channels violate Indian laws and then skip punishment .
