Mumbai: The ministry of information and broadcasting (MIB) has officially recognised the News Broadcasters Federation’s (NBF) self-regulatory body Professional News Broadcasters Standards Authority (PNBSA). NBF claims it is the first and only news broadcasters’ self-regulatory body to get the status.

The PNBSA has been formally registered as a self-regulatory body under the new amendments in the Cable Television Network Act.

“The NBF’s self-regulatory body’s emergence as the sole body to meet all criteria to be granted validation by the Union of India and be the only recognised body regulating the news media sector as on-date once again reiterates the commitment of the largest news broadcasters’ body to the fundamentals of transparency, accountability and strong self-regulation,” said a press statement.

“The PNBSA is set to build a robust system with the highest standards of transparency and accountability," it added.

“I want to thank all the members of the governing body of the NBF who have worked with me towards making this happen," said NBF, president, Arnab Goswami. "The media has a pivotal role in strengthening our democracy and taking it to even greater heights. Strengthening the framework of the self-regulation of the media is a big step in that direction. And that’s exactly what the NBF has been working round the clock towards."

"The NBF prides itself on its democratic structure and roots across the country. Different languages, dynamic formats and varied audiences, but what binds the NBF is our commitment in coming together to strengthen the media pillar of Indian democracy. We look forward to working with the ministry of information and broadcasting to further strengthen self-regulation in our media," Goswami added.

"We are privileged to be the first officially recognised self-regulatory body to be registered for TV news broadcasters," said NBF, secretary-general, R. Jai Krishna. "We are grateful to the ministry of information and broadcasting and our members for reposing trust and faith. We ensure that we will take the news broadcasting of the country to great milestones with our democratic structure, excellence in self-regulation, and bringing the truth and reflections to the doorsteps across the country in maximum languages.”
