Censorship Issues – Censor Board, Banning films, etc

Shyam Benegal committee submits recommendations on film certification

  1. CBFC: The Central Board of Film Certification should only be a film certification body
  2. Its scope should be restricted to categorizing the suitability of the film to audience groups on the basis of age and maturity
  3. The CBFC should refuse certification only when a film contains anything that contravenes the provisions of Section 5B (1) of the Cinematograph Act, 1952
  4. Or also when its content crosses the ceiling laid down in the highest category of certification
  5. The categorisation of films should be more specific and apart from U category, the UA Category can be broken up into further sub-categories – UA12+ and UA15+
  6. The A category should also be sub-divided into A and AC (Adult with Caution) categories
