Gandi Baat In OTT: OTT’s ‘dirty talk’ no more! Guidelines ready for Netflix, Amazon Prime Video

OTT guidelines: After the uproar over Amazon Prime’s web series ‘Tandava’ and ‘Mirzapur’, the demand was raised whether over the top content i.e. OTT platforms need to be regulated. Because right now OTT platforms are self-regulating, that is, they can serve content as they want. But the government has made it clear that it will not work now.

Guidelines ready for OTT platforms

Minister of Information and Broadcasting (Ministrer of Information and Broadcasting) Prakash Javadekar has told in Parliament that OTT will soon issue guidelines regarding platforms. Javadekar said that ‘We were getting many suggestions and complaints, guidelines and directions are almost ready, it will be implemented soon’.

The issue raised in the Rajya Sabha on OTT content

This issue was raised by the BJP MP Mahesh Poddar in the Rajya Sabha. He said that along with the facility of easily available internet in the country, many OTT platforms such as Netflix have grown rapidly. Theaters closed due to the Corona epidemic and lockdown. The penetration of the OTT platform has increased significantly with the closure of recreation equipment. He said, ‘At the same time it also left a wrong impact on the youth of our country, directly attacked our culture and beliefs.

‘OTT Porn and Slut Language Used’

BJP MP from Jharkhand Mahesh Poddar said that the language and content of the OTT platform clearly reflects sexual descrimination or gender discrimination. Obscene words about women are being used on such public channels. Obscene and slum language is being used on the OTT platform. In such a situation, it is important that the government immediately implements the Internet Regulation without delay.
