The cabinet on Monday gave approval for a draft of National Online Media Guideline -2017 making registration mandatory for internet based radio, television and newspapers.

But all the newspapers and televisions already registered do not require further registration with the proposed National Broadcast Commission.

Information ministry placed the draft guideline in the weekly cabinet meeting held at the Jatiya Sangsad complex with the prime minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair.

‘If any newspaper is registered under the Printing Presses and Publication (Declaration and Registration) Act 1973 would not need to get registered from the proposed Broadcast Commission for running their online version. But in that case they will have to inform the commission about their online version in detail,’ cabinet secretary Mohammad Shafiul Alam said at a briefing after the meeting.

The information ministry would observe the matter until the broadcast commission is set up, he said.
