NCPCR recommends age limit for kids in reality TV shows

Following an outcry over children taking part in reality shows, the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights today recommended that kids below seven years should be barred from participating in such TV shows.



New Delhi: Following an outcry over children
taking part in reality shows, the National Commission for
Protection of Child Rights today recommended that kids below
seven years should be barred from participating in such TV
shows.

At a meeting of an internal committee of the commission,
it was decided that the NCPCR will forward the recommendation
to the Information and Broadcasting Ministry within the next
two weeks.

"The age limit has only been fixed for reality TV
shows as in serials or films, directors can order re-takes so
the shooting is not stressful for children," NCPCR member
Sandhya Bajaj said.

It also has to be decided as to how the various TV
shows should be monitored, she said.

There was public clamour over the need to monitor
reality TV shows after the telecast of `Pati Patni or Woh`,
where very young children were made to live with couples who
were not their biological parents.
