Creating a robust and effective digital media regulatory mechanism

A huge regulatory structure just to monitor content and process the violations seem neither optimal nor prudent.

The online content can be curated content (as provided by news portals or entities such as Netflix, Hotstar or Amazon), and also user-generated content.

This will materially change the scope of the notification.(HTARCHIVE)
