The Supreme Court has barred private channels from airing Indian material, the Radio Pakistan reported on Tuesday.
A three-member bench of the apex court headed by Justice Gulzar Ahmad heard the case pertaining to the telecast of Indian material on Pakistani channels in Islamabad.
The SC set aside an earlier verdict by the Lahore High Court (LHC) and reinstated a 2016 policy of the federal government banning the transmission of Indian content on local television channels.
On October 19, 2016, PEMRA imposed a complete ban on airing the Indian content on local television channels. In 2017, the LHC had lifted the ban as the federal government had no objections regarding the same.
The hearing of the case was then adjourned for an indefinite period.
