Kerala HC dismisses MediaOne’s appeal against I&B Ministry’s ban on channel

The High Court dismissed the appeal moved by Malayalam news channel MediaOne against the single judge order upholding the recent ban imposed on it by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting

The Kerala High Court dismissed an appeal made by Malayalam news channel, MediaOne, against a recent Single Judge order which upheld a ban on the channel by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.

The Ministry had refused to renew the broadcast license granted to MediaOne. The channel was banned in January 2022, after which the channel made an appeal in the HC. However, the single judge said the denial of security clearance to MediaOne by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) was “justified” based on the inputs received from intelligence agencies.

Initially, the channel was also banned in 2020 after the ministry alleged it violated provisions of the Cable Television Networks Rules, 1994, in its coverage of the Delhi Riots.
