Defence Ministry asks CBFC to advise production houses to seek NOC on Indian Army theme content

The Defence Ministry has written to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), urging that production houses may be advised to obtain a no-objection certificate (NOC) from the ministry before telecasting any film, documentary or web series on an Army theme.

The ministry took cognizance of several complaints, raising strong objections about the portrayal of Indian Army personnel and the military uniform in an “insulting manner”, that it received and wrote a letter on July 27.

The letter read, “It has been brought to the notice of this Ministry that some production houses, making films on Army theme, are using contents which are distorting the image of the Indian Army.”
