CAIT Takes The Battle From Ecommerce Giants To OTT, Urges Govt To Monitor Content


Traders’ body Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) which has been championing the cause of thousands of mom-and-pop or kirana shops against ecommerce giants Amazon and Flipkart now wants the government to form a regulatory authority to monitor Bollywood, TV and OTT platform’s content.


The traders’ body believes that these platforms spread negativity through their content.


CAIT in a letter to PM Narendra Modi said, “In order to deeply understand the vast effect of television and cinema on the masses and its implications, it is necessary to constitute a Special Task Force by giving the mandate to publish a white paper on the current scenario and, based on the suggestions received from the public, recommend remedial measures to the government, and also a regulatory authority to regulate and monitor every vertical of cinema.”


The Supreme Court recently issued a notice to the government, Ministry of Information and Broadcasting and the Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) in a petition to regulate over-the-top (OTT) platforms by an autonomous body.
