Government gives nod for political advertisements on radio

Mumbai: The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has amended the All India Radio Code to allow political advertisements on air. Accordingly, such advertisements will be allowed to be carried on All India Radio. This would also include FM radio since they too adhere to the AIR Code.

Such advertisements shall be subject to pre-broadcast scrutiny by the Election Commission of India/authorities under the Election Commission of India during the period that model code of conduct is in operation.
