Films, TV should have titles in Indian language: Govt

The Information & Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar has asked all TV channels to write titles in an Indian language apart from English. The Government will soon ask the film industry, too, to implement the practice.

"Whatever serials they broadcast, at either end or beginning of the programme, many times titles are given only in English. To promote Indian languages, we have asked channels to give those titles in the Indian language the programme is aired," Javadekar said.

He clarified that English can be continued. "In addition to an Indian language, if they want to give credits in English as well, they are free to do so. We are not restricting anything. We are actually adding the Indian languages. We are issuing such orders for cinema also," the Minister stated.
