Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has issued a warning to all cable operators all around Pakistan to refrain from violating laws, and not to be part of any illegal activity which includes distressing, moving, relocating and shuffling transmissions of licensed TV channels. Also, no channel is allowed to completely off-air transmissions or suspends them as per the directives that are given by PEMRA.
PEMRA has repeatedly said that the authority would take action against violation of any of the above-mentioned elements. If TV channels violate the guidelines PEMRA would be forced to enforce its summon and take legal action against the culprit channel. They might be given fine or their license could also be suspended. So TV channels need to be careful now in their programming.
