Plea for restrictions on OTT platforms: SC asks petitioner to make representation before govt

The Supreme Court on Friday asked a petitioner, who raised the issue of clamping restrictions on over-the-top (OTT) platforms claiming that they show nudity and inappropriate scenes, to make a representation before the government.

A bench of Justices B R Gavai and Sandeep Mehta was told by the counsel appearing in the court on the petitioner’s behalf that the issue raised in the plea is whether OTT platforms can be allowed to publish or show contents that are not appropriate for viewers of all ages without any restrictions.
