Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, 1995

29 Sep, 1994

COMMENTS: The Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, 1995 (Act No. 7 of 1995) (CTNA) requires that all advertisements comply with a prescribed advertisement code. The most recent version of this code is contained in the 2009 CTNA Rules and prohibits direct advertising of cigarettes or tobacco products. The code, however, permits the indirect advertising of such products under certain circumstances. (Note that a July 2010 Ministry of Information and Broadcasting Directive, appears to prohibit indirect advertising on cable networks until guidelines called for by the CTNA Rules are issued.) CTNA does not regulate international cable television networks. The version uploaded here is as amended only through August 31, 2007. The law available here is in English only.

To the best of our knowledge, all laws provided here are in effect as of June 19, 2024 unless otherwise noted.
