There is a demand for regulating content shown on online TVs and movie platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime. A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has been filed in this regard in the Delhi High Court.

The petition filed by an NGO, Justice for Rights, has been claimed that due to the lack of regulation, these platforms are showing 'totally obscene, religiously prohibited and unethical' content.

Advocate H.S. In this plea filed through Hora, it has also been alleged that in the material appearing on such online platforms, violation of various provisions like the Indian Penal Code (IPC), Information Technology Act, Act about Presenting the Miracle of Women being done.

The NGO has requested the court to immediately order the removal of legally prohibited material from these portals. On this case the High Court has decided to hear from November 14.

It is noteworthy that earlier this month, the court issued a notice to the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting and the IT Ministry on a similar petition in the Bombay High Court.

However, in a petition a few days ago when it was claimed that some dialogues of Netflix's web show 'Sacred Games' have been insulted by a former prime minister, the court refused to take any action on it.
