The Ministry of Home Affairs has streamlined/relaxed national security clearance norms for certain sensitive sectors of the economy including the media sector wherein multi-system operators (MSOs) have been exempted from obtaining national security clearance.
Haribhai Parathibhai Chaudhary, Minister of State for Home Affairs, stated this in a written reply to a question by Venkatesh Babu TG in the Lok Sabha yesterday.
“The new policy guidelines are aimed at bringing about a healthy balance between meeting the imperatives of national security and facilitating the ease of doing business and promoting investment in the country. These guidelines also include the proposal to do away with national security clearance for multi-system operators in the media sector,” said Chaudhary.
