Q. Who recommended the setting up of a Press Council? (December 2023, UGC NET)

1. The President of India

2. The Press Commission

3. The Legislative Body of India

4. The Newspaper organization in India

Correct Ans: (2)

Explanation: The recommendation for setting up a Press Council in India came from the Press Commission. The Press Commission was established by the Government of India to examine the functioning of the press and to suggest measures for its improvement and regulation. The idea was to create an independent body that would oversee the standards of the press, ensure ethical journalism, and protect the freedom of the press. The Press Commission’s recommendation led to the establishment of the Press Council of India, which acts as a watchdog to maintain the standards of newspapers and news agencies in India. This council helps to prevent monopolistic practices and promotes a free, fair, and responsible press.
