New Delhi : The government will hold a meeting with private broadcasters on the much delayed Content Code next week.

"I am holding a meeting next week and then we will decide," Minister for information and broadcasting (I&B) Priya Rranjan Dasmunsi told PTI on the sidelines of a book release function here on Monday.

Content Code, which calls for regulation of content shown by private television channels, has been under much debate as broadcasters see it as a move by the Government to control their programmes.

Referring to the media coverage of the much-reported Aarushi Talwar murder case, he said, "I am keeping a close watch on TV coverage and media should take lessons from the way it covered the case."

The Supreme Court as well as the government were critical of media's role in the manner of the twin murder case was covered.

The News Broadcasters Association (NBA), a body of private news broadcasters, had last week formed the 'News Broadcasting Standards (Disputes Redressal) Authority' to enforce NBA's code of ethics and broadcasting standards. The authority will become operational from October 2.
