NOC Needed From Govt To Telecast Army Theme Film, Web Series

In recent times, the Defence Ministry had received some complaints putting strong objections about the portrayal of Indian Army personnel and Military Uniform in an insulting manner. The scenes related to the Army are far from reality and present a distorted image of the armed forces.

Considering this, the Ministry of Defence has formally written to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology and Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to advise production houses to obtain No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Ministry of Defence before the telecast of any film/ documentary/ web series on Army theme in the public domain.

The Ministry of Defense said the Censor Board should take appropriate action without belittling the Army's reputation. It also clarified that scenes that could hurt the sentiments of the Indian Army could not be seen on screen.
