Role of censor board is to certify films, not the ministry: I&B Minister

Information and Broadcasting Minister Arun Jaitley has said that the role of the censor board is to certify films and prohibition is not the policy of his ministry. Mr Jaitley’s comments, made in an interview with Doordarshan, come in the wake of a row over a list of cuss words drawn up for banning by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).

He said, Information and Broadcasting Ministry is a regulating Ministry and it should not interfere too much. He said film industry is an independent industry and his Ministry works only for certification. Mr Jaitley said, stopping a movie is not his policy. He said, it has been told to the concerned certifying agency and if they feel some scene cannot be certified, it should cancel it.
