About the committee:

  • The committee will be responsible to address the ‘needs of the stakeholders’ and make necessary recommendations for a rating system which shall be ‘robust, transparent and accountable’.
  • It will have to submit its report to the Information and Broadcasting minister within two months.
  • The need to form such committee was felt after the alleged TRP scam in which it was alleged that certain TV channels manipulated TRPs in return for payment.
  • TRP is calculated in India by the Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) using a device called Bar-O-Meter, which is installed in over 45,000 households across the country.
  • The device collects data about a programme or channel watched by members of these households on the basis of which weekly ratings are issued by BARC.

Important takeaways for all competitive exams:

  • Chairman of Broadcast Audience Research Council India: Punit Goenka.
  • Broadcast Audience Research Council Founded: 2010.
  • Broadcast Audience Research Council Headquarters: Mumbai.
