The Supreme Court has issued notices to the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting and Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and sought their replies on a plea seeking guidelines for pre-censorship of films.

A bench, comprising Justices A K Sikri and Ashok Bhushan passed the order yesterday. The petitioner has sought action on the report of a committee headed by legendary filmmaker Shyam Benegal which, among other things, had suggested that the censor board’s role should be confined to certifying films.

In his plea before the top court, the petitioner has sought relaxation in the censorship of films by removal of pre-censorship of movies.
