On Friday, Delhi High court dismissed the plea of an NGO, Justice for Rights, seeking a ban on inappropriate video contents that Netflix and Amazon Prime show.

However, the bench-inclusive of Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice V K Rao banished the plea stating that there was no public concern involved. The plea has been turned away till the period new guidelines are framed.

In essence, PIL ( Public Interest Litigation) was filed in October 2018 and further alleged that the video content on online platforms breached clauses of IPC (Indian Penal code) and ITC (Information Technology Act). The accuser sought the court to take off illegitimate, inapt content from web portals.

The appeal was filed weeks later when Delhi High court declined to issue directions to Netflixs producers. It was claimed that in Scared Games, a Netflixs show, derogatory remarks were made against the former prime minister. In response, the high court impeached if such type of content regulation was within the jurisdiction of the court. (Source: The Indian Express)
