    New Delhi: The Government of India has invited suggestions/comments from all stakeholders in respect of the proposed amendments to the Press and Registration of Books Act, 1867. The draft amendments have been put on Registrar of Newspapers for India's (RNI) website, www.rni.nic.in and also on the website of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, :: Ministry of Information and Broadcasting ::. Besides, RNI has also written to various newspaper associations separately inviting suggestions on the proposed amendments.

    The PRB Act enacted in the year 1867 has undergone little change, through amendments, in the last 142 years. On the other hand, the print media has grown exponentially over the years. The Government has also allowed news syndication, FDI and Facsimile editions of foreign newspapers. In view of the developments, it is felt necessary to bring the Act in tune with the changing times, as the Act in its present form is inadequate to address the requirements of the print media.

    Suggestions can be sent to the Registrar of Newspapers for India, West Block-8, Wing-2, R.K. Puram, New Delhi � 110 066, superscribing the envelop with "PRB Act suggestions" latest by March 3, 2010.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
